Do you have a special time with your spouse?

My husband and I have set aside Friday evenings to be our special time together. Lots of times on the weekends we have one or two of our grandchildren so we told our children that Friday is "no grandkids" evening. We usually take 2 or 3 DVDs to our bedroom with us and then watch them from our bed. We relax and just have that time together. It is a very romantic time and also a good time for us to talk over things we need to talk about. Do you have a special time? I think that it is very important for a couple to set aside some special time just for each other.

hi jarnold51, my dear dear friend, i just loved what you say and what you have written. its sooo very true. its three years of our marriage and we have not seen a single movie with each other. our life if you see from that angle, is very very boring. we are together most of the time but we are never together. its business all the time or other situations which are on his mind. its so boring. our life is very dull in that sense. after reading your discussion, i felt so nice, soooo something, that i just cant exlain or write down what i felt after reading them. i wanted very much to respond back. i really wanna sit and have some nice talk, some discussion , something romantic, but its never.its not that if you are physically together, you love each other a lot. no, i dont think so. one should give time to each other, one should think that the other one also has some feelings which he/she may wanna share it with you. so atleast one day ion whole week or in fifteen days, one should give time to each other. time which is truely yours. i fully believe that it is very important for a couple to set aside some special time JUST FOR EACH OTHER.

thanks for selecting my response as the best. i think my hubby didnt like this response of mine because after reading it, he was not happy as he always use to be after telling me that i got a best response.he was like hmmmmmm.we both work on same desktop and have same e-mail id , so.... i hope he dont take it seriously and feel bad. i didnt share the fact with u in some other sense. i wrote what i felt and not as a criticism.

I agree with you totally and I wish that me and my husband has time together,my child is still 3 years old and it is impossible to have some time together until she sleeps. The problem is that We both work full time and when I arrive home, I have to do house work and I will be really tired sometimes I sleep exactly with my child, som we don't have time together very much. valentines day is coming and we are planning something special for us and to leave our child with my parents so we will have some time alone.

Me and My husband used to have the weekends set aside for spending time together,but since we have hit this financial crisis we have not had much time together because I am always online working or trying to find ways to make money and when I am not online I am sleeping. I cant wait to get back on our feet so we can spend some nice relaxing time together again

I agree, you two are as one now, and hence need that bonding time to love on one another ( sexually and non sexually). Just being close to each other every day isn't enough, to hold a firm relationship, you need to know every detail of each other ( events, life, personal stuff, love)
