Some say this is unhealthy, what do you think? **Edit..My post was on the Today Show!**
I know what I'm about to tell you will sound like I'm a spoiled brat. But I require A LOT of attention from my spouse. Luckily for our marriage it is mutual. We talk all day long on IM, email, text. I spend an extra hour in the mornings and afternoon's in the car, going way out of my way, just so we can share a ride to work. Everything we do, is together. Our kids are grown so they do not require much of our attention. We do however, take all of them to breakfast every Saturday morning, and are always there when they need us, so its not like we ignore our children.
The few friends that we have, are more like aquaintances, we don't really do things with other couples, because we prefer the company of just each other. DH goes with me to all of my doctors appointments, even goes and sits with me while I get my hair cut. We grocery shop together, do yard work together. I can't think of anything we do other then work, that isn't together. And that is about to change, when he retires from the military, we are going to open a business together.
One of our children love how we are and want it for their own relationship, the other two say its gross! LOL Our friends and family are always asking if we get tired of each other and the honest answer is no, never!
How are you and your spouses relationship as far as spending time together?
WOW! Start at 7:50 mins, they cut the segment short, but I'm so excited, my words were read on TV!
