My husband and I rarely get a night out without the kids. We don't have a lot of family that can babysit. I told my hubby I'd like to hire a sitters just so we can go out one night a month just to have time as a couple. He was really into the idea and told me if I could find someone he'd definitely do it. I found a sitter and everything we decided on a night and time. Today he tells me he invited another couple along on our date night. I don't even know the couple. He's done this before where we have a date night and one time he invited his aunt and uncle out with us, another time he told his friends we were going to get wings and a few drinks and told them to meet us there.
We seriously only get a date night about 3 or 4 times a year. Today when he told me he invited this couple to go that I don't know (and he didn't even ask me before asking them) I got mad and told him that we don't get to go out and have time to ourselves very often and I really wanted it to just be me and him and told him about the other times he invited people on our date night without asking me first. It's not that I'm anti-social it's just that we NEED time alone as a couple for our relatioship. That was the point of the conversation about finding a sitter for one weekend a month. This is the very first date night with the sitter (so it's just starting).
I'm always so two sided. I guess it's the Libra in me but one side says maybe they'll be a nice couple and we'll have fun, but the other part is bothered by the fact that my husband doesn't seem to want to go out anywhere with just me. Would you be mad?
