    We occasionally text about the kids like who is picking them up, what's for dinner or if I hear or read anything in the news of interest that I might forget by the time I get home

    We set our alarms an hour early every morning and enjoy a leisurely breakfast together before work so we can chat. Then we go to work (we run a business together) and see each other all day, and then we talk again over dinner.

    If I'm not working and he is, then we'll text occasionally just to see how each other's day is going. We are never annoyed if the other cant or doesn't text back though.

    He's the only person in my life who I've ever been in close contact with. I'm the type of person who is more than happy to talk to friends once a month or so, and my family maybe once a week or fortnight.

    We aren't close in a clingy way though - we never get upset if the other isn't available or something, but we share everything with each other. Not because we feel like we 'have to' but because we just feel strangely compelled to immediately tell the other when the boy at subway puts extra olives on our sandwich without being asked, or when we see a really fluffy dog with a strangely long tail on the way to the supermarket. Also, there's no one in the world who would be the same amount of excited about either of these things as DH is

    We always say goodbye in the mornings. We may or may not call/text during the day if there's something we need to say. E.g. We're building a house atm and sometimes the builder calls and needs an answer so we call/text each other. Then I usually call on the way home to say when I'll be home. It's so we can coordinate who is picking up DS, cooking dinner etc

    We work together so I see/talk to him all the time but we still try to organise a lunch out together at least once a week so we can actually talk about things other than work!

    My husband works shifts so if he is gone before I'm up I don't talk to him usually, because I'm sleeping. Otherwise I talk to him during the day before he starts. When he is on night shifts we often email back and forth a lot but that's because there is seriously nothing for him to do so we may as well hah.
    If he is away for work he rings every night but it could be anywhere from a 5 minute goodnight call, up to half an hour if he has a cool story to tell me.
    I don't go out at nights with friends so no issue there. He often I Es up the road to a mates fire pit. I don't message or anything. He always ends up home literally hours after he says he will be and often says "why didn't you message and tell me to come home?" Because he feels bad for losing track of time, but I'm not worried.
    I love talking to him and we are absolutely each other's best friends but I don't like the idea of crowding him. Sometimes when I know he is busy and doesn't have his phone on him (during courses etc) I will message random thoughts or whatever for him to read once he finishes.

    Dh and I rarely txt or talk during the day unless there is an issue. Neither of us have the type of jobs where we can do that.

    It would not occur to me to txt him while I am out, it's a pet hate of mine when people are on their phones instead of interacting with the person in front of them.

    If either of us are away we might talk at night, depending on where we are and how readily available communication is.

    So I guess I am not really fussed about how often we communicate when we are not together, we always catch up at home eventually

    We don't see each other in the morning because he leaves at 5am, but I usually get a message by lunch time saying have a good day, or asking how our day is going. Also reminders of things I need to do because my memory is terrible.

    Most days we speak via texts on at least two occasions. Then he's home
    At 6pm.

    I find it interesting posters who say they communicate multiple times a day do it because " my partner is my best friend". I think it comes down to personality type rather than being best friends or not. My DH is my best friend but we don't usually communicate during the day much. Just a quick text or email to see how eachother is going unless there is something that needs to be sorted/discussed then and there and can't wait til the evening. That's just how we prefer it!

    Im a sahm and hubby works in an office environment 9-5 plus commute.
    We probably text each other multiple times an hour all day. Just stuff about our child or how im feeling (im pregnant), or the news. Just general stuff. Sometimes ill text him 5 random msgs and he doesn't always reply but im fine with that as he is spose to be working. I just like someone to talk to when im home alone day after day.
    Well sit and eat dinner together as a family at night and talk. Then I'll head to bed before him and ill often text him within the house. We are in a big 2 story house and often i don't want to go downstairs if it will risk waking up my son who is a light sleeper.

    We say goodbye in the mornings if he is home. We only talk during the day if we need to discuss something or something has happened otherwise we talk at night. If DH is away for work we might talk every couple of days usually FaceTime depending on how long he is away. We don't text if we are out with friends unless it's important.
