When you're married with children it's sometimes difficult to make the time to see your friends. How do you cope or manage the time to make for your friends?

If you are in a situation where you are already married and have kids and you want to see your friends, it would be better to ask them to come to your place. I myself is in this situation. I miss my college friends but since I got married and had a 2 month old son, it hard for me to go outside and meet with them. So what I'm trying to do now is to send them email messages asking for a reunion since the last time we saw each other is more than a year ago. And besides they are still single so I think if they really miss me too then they should be the ones to find a way on how we can be reunited again. I have 3 friends who are all busy and until now I'm still waiting for their replies. If in case the situation is different, let's say some of them also have their families then the best thing we could do to meet again is to ask our husband's permissions or better bring them with us so it will be a very big reunion!

It's quite difficult at first when the child is at young age but now as my son turn 6 its not a problems anymore. I sometime brings him along to see my friends. I always hang with my buddies at night after he's asleep so I just let my mother look for it for a while.

I'm a babysitter for a family with 7 kids. I babysit for them once a week so the mother can run errands and again once a week so they can have date night or go out with friends. I think it's important for spouses to make time for each other and for their friends. This will help maintain and keep relationships strong! Try hiring a babysitting if you have the money :)
