    No, not at all.

    Having said that, there's every chance DH would use it as an excuse to not go to something, as he would usually prefer to not go out!

    No at all, I wish he would go out more, he works way too hard.

    Still waiting to hear the background story to the question though....??!!

    Hell no I wouldn't want my DH to go out and have fun without me! lol

    I wouldn't stop him from going though, if he really wanted to attend something.

    Hmmm we have a pretty casual arrangement..if one of us wants to do someing, there's not really any 'asking' or 'permission', we only really check whether the other is available to watch DS. Like yesterday, I wanted to take off for the day to see my friend, so off I went. No biggie. He's going out tonight too so I am using it as a night for myself to drink a glass of wine, read bridal magazines and watch escape to the country haha.

    I guess I would only be upset if there was an imbalance, like he went out all the time but made it difficult for me to go out by refusing to watch the kid/s. I can understand why some of my friends are hurt because their husband constantly goes to the pub with his friends and whenever she organises a night for her and her friends he's suddenly "not available" to watch the kids but will happily trott off again to the oub.

    I think it's weird to not go because your partner cannot or will not for whatever reason. Unless you need their help (eg you've just had surgery but have 3 kids to care for), they should go if they want too.

    I don't understand why grown adults MUST attend events together just because they're a couple.

    Nope. Although I would expect him to be up and fuctioning the next morning, I would be pretty annoyed if he wrote himself off and couldn't get put if bed the next day leaving me to care for the baby. Unless we had negotiated that beforehand and i got a night out and/or sleep in in return.

    DH plays sport one full day a week then two nights a week is busy with social things then also had a full day of a once off social event the day after said party, plus he worked late 3 nights this week so I kinda expected him to stay in for the night - just cos he hasnt been around much. Just having a whinge...

    Ah you well in that case yes I would be whinging too! There doesn't seem to be much balance there. Is that a regular occurrence?
