Because my husband doesn't enjoy socialising or any of the things I like to do, I've spent more hours than I can count staying at home watching TV, in order to be with him and not make him feel like I'm having a life without him. I'd love to get out more and do more things on my own. But I've realised that when I want to go out for a whole day's shopping, or visit family independently, I seem to feel guilty at abandoning him, and almost have to have a cast-iron reason why I need to go, not just 'I feel like it'. Has anyone else experienced this, and how do you handle it?
