I love my husband to death, I truly do, but since he's been laid off he's been driving me nuts, and I'm sure he feels the same way about me!

My husband and I are opposites in every way; I'm an introvert, he's an extrovert. He is go, go, go, I am stay, stay, stay. He is persnickety, I am relaxed and easygoing. This typically works, but since he's been home we're driving each other up the wall. The majority of the day he runs around like a chicken with he head cut off saying, 'I'm bored! I need a project! This is boring!'

He has a FOURTH interview with the same company on Monday, so fingers crossed! 

So how do you feel? All the time or sometimes?

Nope. I love him to death but I enjoy my space as I'm sure he does too.

It wouldn't work for a long period of time.  We would need breaks from each other.  I think that's just human nature.  I think it's hard to be around someone truly 24/7 for a long period of time without feeling like you are losing yourself.  Everyone needs some time alone.  Just how much time depends on the individual.

We just spent a week together in NH for spring break with our kids.  Glad to be back home and everyone doing their own thing..for at least part of the day...lol.  Love them dearly, though!

Bf is 4 on the boat, 4 off. It works well. Lol. Everyone agrees we have it good and is sure it's why we typically get along so well. We're both pretty independent so we know how to be in the room and do our own thing or do activities together. If being together 24/7 meant actually talking all the time and being up eachother's rear ends, one of us would go probably go crazy. Fortunately, it's a shared thing, so we tend to do our own thing even when together. We do cuddle, talk, watch tv and play video games together...but we keep it in mutually satisfying 'doses'.

No. DH had no job for almost 4 years and was always home doing nothing. Drove me insane i couldn't stand him being around so much. But maybe the lack of doing anything is what made me mad
