I'm just wondering how long other people spend with their spouse in the evening to see if we're also in the norm :lol: Ever since my husband has had a longer commute, it obviously means shorter time in the evenings to really talk because he needs his own unwinding time (who doesn't?!) which I understand but I'm also eager to talk with him about our days and any other issues. We usually end up doing our own thing (like laptop or watch tv) in the same room but it doesn't feel like we get much talking in the evenings. He likes different shows than I do so unless I pick a show out, I'm not interested in his shows. I would say we have about an hour of talking/watching the same show together and the rest is whatever we want to do time, independently. I also go to bed earlier than him but I've been staying up later just to "visit". We don't even have kids yet and I hope he can get home earlier when we do have kids so the weeknights don't feel so rushy with talking and personal time.... When I stay up too late for me, I feel it the next day so that's been tough on me but I don't have an early morning job (it's in the afternoon) so I've been making some changes but I need to get back to more sleep.
