I think I’ve been fortunate for a number of years in that the hubby and I have worked within a 5-minute drive from one another. Because of the proximity, we eat lunch together quite a bit. A friend of mine appeared to be astonished that we have lunch together more than once during the work week. In fact, we’ve had times where we’ve had lunch the entire week. This friend commented that it was just too much – as in, don’t you need a break? (If it means anything,this friend is unmarried and at least 15 years older than I am.)
I have to admit that I was taken aback by this response. It seems a little… old-fashioned? I mean, we’re not together all the time. We have separate things that we do but my husband and I genuinely enjoy each others’ company. We laugh together, we have fun, we like each other. We like to do things together. We’re not one of those old school couples that call each other “ball and chain” and limit their time together. And we’ve also been married for more than 10 years.
What are your thoughts on this? If you could have lunch with your hubby/wife pretty frequently, would you?
