Will you go to dinners and parties without your spouse?
Where I live now people are a little odd about this in my opinion. For instance, last Christmas my husband was very sick on the night of our car club’s annual Christmas party. I still went. A few people made a comment about how great it was I came out even without him. I have known these people for a few years at this point. Not to mention I am the social chairperson and coordinate all events.
At a recent club dinner a gentleman who usually comes with his wife, when I asked where she was, he told me she had another obligation, and usually would not come without her, but she encouraged him to come alone.
What’s the big deal? Do you go places without your spouse? I especially am interested in these sorts of group social type gatherings, but also do you go to the theatre, travel, eat out by yourself?
Do you find it odd to see people out without their spouse? Is it uncomfortable to you to have an odd number in a group like a 3rd or 5th wheel? Or, to be the odd one out?
