Wife seeks some week­end re­lax­ation

Chattanooga Times Free Press - - PUZZLES & FUNNIES -

DEAR ABBY: I have a won­der­ful hus­band. He is very out­go­ing, and I would like to think of my­self as the same, but I work hard. He al­ways makes plans for the week­ends, but some­times I just want to stay home, re­lax and get the house in or­der. The prob­lem is, he in­sists we go and do some­thing like day or overnight trips hours away ev­ery week­end. I en­cour­age him to go visit our friends be­cause I know I can trust him, and I need some alone time! Am I wrong for that? — PEACE­FUL AND STILL


You are not wrong. You are as en­ti­tled to your feel­ings as your hus­band is to his. Things should not al­ways have to be his way. The two of you need to work out a com­pro­mise. (Com­pro­mise is the secret in­gre­di­ent in happy mar­riages.) If he feels the need to get away and it doesn’t bother you be­cause you trust him, you should be en­ti­tled to time at home to get the place — and your head — straight.
