Yes. I like this topic. LOL!!!
I love my spouse, loads, yet, I would like more privacy and breathing space. I miss "ugly-time" (tee-hee); you know, those moments when you just are, without care of someone else seeing you. Then, after a day of renewal, resurfacing as a vision of loveliness that he hadn't seen in a while.
I miss, missing him (sigh). I always loved when I hadn't seen him for a day or two and getting giddy at the thought of his arrival or being pleasantly surprised by him showing up.
Marriage is lovely, it just lacks a few of the courting perks I really enjoyed (remember I'm a journey girl, not a destination girl).
Breathing Space is spiritual and renewing for me. Being married and living separate has always been a wonderful concept in my mind because you get more breathing space-time.
Maybe when my girls are older I will discuss it with my hubby again. Or, if we just get a larger abode I could create a private suite that would be a perfect runner up. Hmmm, how to convince him that living alone will be just as awesome for him as it will be for me (ha!).
Great topic ladies (LOL)
