Men going out poll

My husband thinks that I'm in the minority of nagging wives who get frustrated with their husbands going out. He goes out 2 nights a week and occasionally 3. Going out means that he goes hangs out with his friends, drinks, and I sit home and take care of the kids. Last night I took our 6 year old to the movies, while he watched the other 2 boys. So since I "went out" that meant that he should be able to go out when I got home. Which he did. So please answer the poll honestly with if you'd be frustrated or not.

OPTION 1: I would be frustrated with my husband going out 2 or more nights a week.

OPTION 2: I would not be frustrated with my husband going out 2 or more nights a week.

I'd be ok with once or twice a MONTH, but not per week! That's crazy.

I wouldn't be as long as I get to go out 2 times a week too!

Re: Men going out poll

My husband only goes out when I am out of town visiting my family (I go on longer visits when my eldest is on school breaks or when there's a funeral or something) When we go out, we go together. I would be upset that my husband didn't want to spend more time with me and the kids if he went out that often (My DH works full time and goes to school full time so his free time is really precious to us)

Re: Men going out poll

My husband never goes out with "the boys". He has a couple of guys from work that he is friends with but they come over here to hang out, once every couple of months. But then he works a hard trade and is usually exhausted by the time he comes home. And he is old. lol (he's 34)

Yeah, We try to live a very family centered life. If DH was wanting to go out 2+ times a week, particularly to drink - not even like he's pursuing a hobby or something, I would see it as an indication of a major problem

DH would never think of being gone two nights a week with "the guys." I'd have no problem with him being out at church or a club/hobby group, or some organized activity. But just going out for no official purpose twice a week is not OK with me!

Re: Men going out poll

I guess it would depend how long he's out each time. There have been a few weeks when DH has gone out for a beer with friends one evening and out with the office an other evening, but he's home by six either way. It might bother me if it were like that every week, but not once in a while.

If it's a late night out, even once in a while at that frequency it would really bother me.

Re: Men going out poll

Yes Id be upset....this has been something we've been dealing with also. We have 4 kiddos and to me it's just not fair!!! I pretty much have no friends now ( before all I did was hang out) I feel that IF i'm willing to settle down and focus on the family he should too!!! 1 or 2 xs a month at the most I'd be ok with but then that depends on who he is hanging out with too.........
