    When the wife was with her previous employer, she used to have to go to Alaska for a few days each quarter. I would use that time to go on nice long runs or stay at the gym longer than I normally would, go see movies in the theatre that she had no interest in, and rearrange furniture with the hope that she wouldn't notice when she returned.

    Strange logic guys. Married people say they miss their wife and don't particularly enjoy when she's away and your interpretation is that married life is depressing? I think you got it slightly backwards.

    read the above post. moving furniture around and hoping your wife doesnt notice seems like a depressing life to me.

    Eh. If you need another person to stop you from compulsively masturbating and eating like shit, yeah, that seems a little depressing.

    Sometimes the wifely unit makes us want to be better men (when they're around). OR sometimes the wifely unit tazes us when we whip out the wang at inappropriate times. Marriage is a funny thing.

    I do pretty much the same thing as when she's here, I just don't have my usual partner in crime with me to enjoy things.

    Man that's not it at all. More like you rarely get (or would want) a chance to be lazy and hedonistic when you have the family around so on the rare occasion when you can you just do nothing but eat crap food and do whatever amuses you. It's really nice to not have anyone need anything from you for 24 hrs. But not much longer.
    Frankly being single seems boring to me now.

    Well, in addition to making crab tonight I'm having people over. Belgium beer, sour dough garlic bread, crab and then some good dessert. Last night, stayed late at the gym and then met a friend for dinner and drinks. Tomorrow I will get together with more friends. I miss my wife but I can be totally selfish in deciding what I want to eat, drink or who I want to see or what I want to do and when. Its fun for a few days now and then.

    I kind of go to pieces; it's actually pretty embarrassing. She is a highly domesticating influence on me. I eat terribly, because cooking for me isn't as fun as cooking for her. I don't put away clothes or dishes or clean up after myself, it's pretty lame. I stay up really late for no reason at all.

    It's even harder now with the baby because I can't just go out and eat and not make a mess at home instead. I generally try to find some company to come over or somewhere to go with her.


    I envy you, such a good family man. (0)

    I leave the house sooner in the morning. I get more work done while at the office. I go to bed earlier. I eat healthier. I work out longer. I wear the scent she doesn't care much for. I wear the pants she says are too tight. I look at R almost X movies.

    I used to stay out late when she's away... but lately the idea of drinking till 3am doesn't appeal to me anymore... now I tend to stay home more when she's not here, and I usually try to go out on a date with my 2 kids.

    I ride my bike around town, maybe take the train to visit a couple of shrines or temples (which she has no particular interest in), and go to an izakaya for a drink or two with friends in the evening. Of course, we have a 7-month-old now, so any "away" time is usually the three of us. I might be able to visit some friends in Tokyo later this year, but only provided that we figure out a way to bathe the baby that doesn't require two adults. Maybe once she's able to sit up by herself, we can put a chair in the bathroom so she doesn't have to be held while my wife washes herself?

    This is surprisingly fulfilling, especially with a rabbit instead of a dog.

    I usually eat Chinese food, she isn't a fran. I try not to go out unsupervised, I have a tendency to drink too much and act a bigger fool than normal.
