Well, hubby is out-of-town until at least Thursday, possibly Friday. We were talking about going out to dinner but I said everyone will be doing that and everyplace will be busy. We might do dinner Saturday night.
I know I'm getting something delivered to me at work Friday but I don't know what.View Thread
I'm in the same position but the opposite: my husband is the neat one and I'm not. Yes, my house is a bit messy but it's not necesarily dirty. Once it gets to a certain point, I do clean it but not as often as my husband. I've gone to the store and come home to a clean living room but I can't find anyting because he put it someplace.
What gets me is he knew how I was before he moved in and it hasn't gotten any better after kids.View Thread
There are definitely times when I want to ask my MIL "Really?" My FIL was in the hospital for an entire weekend and neither my MIL or FIL told my SIL; she found out when DH told her. My SIL would not have visited because she knows that would not have been welcome but she would have appreciated knowing. DH was worried she'd get upset if she heard it from him but she was more upset that neither one of their parents told her.View Thread
My SIL lives with DH and me during the week. My MIL offered to help clean our house today. MIL and SIL are estranged and don't talk. Usually, SIL leaves for work around 8:30a so MIL was going to come over after 9a. Well, SIL called in sick and is all bent out of shape because MIL is there. I talked to SIL briefly last night before bed and she didn't say anything about not going to work today. This morning I left before SIL was up so I didn't see her. If I would have known SIL was going to be home, I would have let MIL or DH know and we could have rescheduled. Sigh. I hate family drama.View Thread
I'm also friendly with an ex I occasionally see. I don't see him on purpose, but we work in the same area of town so I'll occasionally run into him when I'm out and about. We'll hug and chat for a bit but that's it. I do tell DH so it's not a secret.View Thread
I was able to be friends with an ex for a number of years but eventually, I ended the friendship because I felt he used me for sex a few times without wanting a relationship.
I think it would depend on why and how you broke up. If it was an amicable break-up, I think a couple could still remain friends. I've heard of divorced couples double dating with their ex spouse when they both started dating other people.View Thread
Well, a good male friend is married and I'm not friends with his wife. I've met her a few times but I wouldn't call us friends. I never wanted more from him and he never gave any indication he wanted more from me. I will admit if we were both single, I wouldn't mind dating him but since we're both married, I don't see him as anything other than a friend. We communicate mostly via e-mail and have had lunch a few times. DH knows of my e-mail communication with hime and jokingly refers to him as my boyfriend. DH has met him and his wife at least twice.View Thread
Yes, I have a friend of the opposite sex. DH has met him and his family and even jokingly calls him my boyfriend. We've had lunch together a few times and I alway tell DH. We occasionally e-mail, usually about work or people we have in common. He even came to one of DH's band's gigs.
He is someone that if we were both single, I wouldn't mind dating but since neither of us is single, I don't think of him "that way."View Thread
