Abcense does NOT make my heart grow fonder (it also doesn't make me a very good speller LMAO)


When DH and I spend time apart I get irritated, agitated, short with him and just overall frustrated. We are the could be together 28-8 people and we LIKE it like that.


I am waiting for him right now getting ticked that it's taking him so long to get home from school!

I would say in my case, yes. I travel for my job, and I miss my DW while I am gone. When I return, we are both ready to celebrate my return.

Do you want your DH/DW more after being away from them?? - yes, sometimes desparately

how much time is 'needed' for the you to really want them?? 1 hour, 1 day, 1 week, 1 month??

With Physical seperation, it usually takes 2-3 days. Sometimes thought I miss her even when we are together.

How often have you and your dh/dw been apart?? With my job it varies. Recently I was gone for almost 2 weeks. A few weeks before that I was out for 3 days. Before that, I was home a couple of months straight.

Yes

Yes

That depends, sometimes it could be just a day, sometimes it could be a few days.

How often have you and your dh/dw been apart?? Anymore not at all. I used to travel quite often and I would be gone 4 or 5 days a month. Now, besides being apart when he's at work, unless there is a family emergency where one of us has to be gone, we are together all the time.

~ At times and it also depends on how long the absence is.


Do you want your DH/DW more after being away from them??


~ Once again, it depends on how long we have been apart.

we haven't been apart since we've been married except for when he goes to work....and when I was ICU/CICU after having the baby 2 months early.....I think it makes you appreciate him/her more....

It might make some appareciate their DHs more... unless they are having trouble and when DH is gone - the DW sees that she REALLY was doing evertying b/c her routine is the same with him home as gone and then that's not good news...
