    Default If you couldn't go to a function would you expect your DH to not go?

    If you were not able to attend a party/function due to still BFing and no babysitters - would you expect your other half to sit at home with you to make it fair?

    Note, I don't mean a wedding or a special occasion.

    Nope.... As long as it wasn't every weekend or something.

    If its not a special occasion like a wedding, I don't see why bub couldn't go?

    But if there is a valid reason, no I wouldn't expect him to stay home (but my DH would probably see it as a great excuse not to go, the introvert he is)

    no I wouldnt. I'd still encourage him to go if it was a "one off" sort of thing. If it was happening every weekend I would likely get pretty peeved about it.

    No. If it was a formal even (which he hates) he'd probably use it as an excuse to get out of it. But if it was a bbq or something that I couldn't bw bolloxed going to then he'd probably still go. We call it "sending a family representative". Ive done the same when he has to work or get to bed early or whatever.

    But it very rarely happens that we both can't go to something as we dont go to much anyway!

    I wouldn't have an issue with him going as long as it wasn't an every single weekend thing.

    Having said that, DH is an introverted home body so he probably wouldn't go without me

    I'd have no problem with it but generally speaking we go to things together or DF will stay home with us if I can't for some reason go.

    Nope. I've missed out on quite a few functions this year because of bubby and I've been fine with him going. Why should we both miss out?
