Am I wrong?

DH used to work offshore. He was gone for 7 days then he would be home for 7 days. He was transfered almost a year ago and we had to relocate 8 hours from family and friends. He recently started working 7 days a week and atleast 12 hr days sometimes 16 or 18 hr days. I feel bad he's working so much right now but I'm enjoying it. I feel guilty because I feel like I should be missing him, but I'm not.

I'm assuming it's bc it was like a I had a double life when he was offshore. It was like I was single again (without other men obviously) but I was able to just be on my own schedule, I could go and come as I pleased. DH doesn't tell me I can't go somewhere or do something but since he's home it's always him and I going somewhere or doing something.  I always needed just some me time and since we moved I haven't had that.

So yes, I'm throughly enjoying not seeing him.... am I wrong?  




I post anonymously bc in this group I always post anon. It could ask for my fav color and I'd post anon.

You're not wrong. When you're used to living a certain way it's difficult to change the dynamic.

If that's what makes you feel bad there's nothing wrong with telling him you miss him to spare his feelings, ya know?
