Long commutes?

How long is your commute and what do you consider normal? My husband wants us both to drive an hour for work 3-4 days a week for me probably 5 for him. I don't think it's worth it for me to be away from my kids am extra 6-8 hours a wek. I miss them enough at work as it is... But I know a lot of dads that have long commutes and just get home really late...

What is the reason for the long commute?

I drive 3 minutes.

My husband drives about an hour.

I think anything over an hour is long,

Damn! But the money makes it worth it right? Does he miss everyone? Is he just used to it?

I've done it both ways. The commute from my old place used to be an hour and a half in one direction, now it's 15-30 minutes, depending on the traffic.

It's significantly better for my blood pressure to not have to drive three hours a day in Los Angeles traffic, but the shorter commute doesn't necessarily mean I get home sooner than I used to. I make up the difference by staying at work longer.

My morning & evening commutes run anywhere from an hour and a half to three hours round trip.

DH only commutes 15 minutes each way to work. When I go back to work the hospital I want to work at is about 45 minutes away, one way. I am willing to do it because it is a teaching hospital and the experience will be so worth it!

Hubby drives about 15-20 mins. Depending on traffic, sometimes it can be a bit longer. I get up and walk down the stairs.
