Well good for you. I am fortunate enough to have a wife, who although has some health issues, understands that I have a passion for the outdoor things that I do, and the need to do them. I know too many guys who are hardly let out of their partners sight and two friends who would love to go on a multi day walk with me but daren't even mention the thought of it to their other half. I just don't think that is fair. Live and let live, we are not joined at the hip, we may be married or in a partnership, but we are all still very much individuals and as long as our responsibilities are taken care of, we all need a little occasional space.
