i am planning a wedding for next year. SO and i have been dating since jan this year. Even though i have complete intentions to marry him and spend the rest of my life w him, there are times that i'm glad to have time apart. Is that bad? Sometimes i'm overwhelmed w my kids and him bugging me for everything, demanding my attn. So the days where its just me and the girls, i'm glad. I miss him those days, of course...

I was a loner but now am married and have 2 kids and I still enjoy times where it is just me.

Lol if you feel this way and you've only been together since January, that's not really a good sign.

Totally normal. Every couple is different. I'm perfectly happy spending every second with DH and he feels the same. Other people need a day here or there away from each other so they can unwind. Really, whatever works for you two is a good thing. :)

I'm the same. Although I've also been one to like time alone

 I have been married for 14 years, and I stand by my feelings of I can't miss you til you go away. I love him and he is beautiful and sexy and my very best friend, but I need time away to make that appreciation that much more. We would not have made it 3 yrs. if he was always with me. Time apart and time to be your own people is the key I think, may not be for everyone, but I love my time alone, with the kids, and with him equally, I feel that it makes me more balanced. I am a mother, I am a wife, but first I have to be me first to make it all work.
