Ok, maybe that’s the wrong term — let’s just say my husband is not social.
I’m actually a pretty big introvert myself, but on the weekends I’d like to get together with friends and their families here and there to keep in touch/maintain friendships. My husband is more about seeing a friend one-on-one on his own — having them over and watching movies in the basement, going to a concert, or to the movies. I asked him to go out with another family to a fall festival this weekend and he shuddered and declined because I didn’t give him enough notice and we’ve been “doing too much lately.”
I don’t like it. We have two little kids and I don’t want to come home after working all week to just run errands and sit in the house. So I’m bringing the kids myself to meet up with our friends.
This happens too often and it makes me question if I should stay in this relationship because it’s really a trigger point for me, but with two little kids I can’t just walk away. I’ve been with my husband for over a decade.
