Wow, I cannot believe I am speaking out here but when I was a new bride - many years ago, my hubby had his motorcycle buddies and he played pool one night a week. He is a hunter and loves to fish. I knew these things going into our marriage. I also knew he did not like to shop, go to fancy restaurants or entertain alot. I resented some of his time away but when we talked about it things always worked out.
At first I tired to "change" him - shame on me as I loved him just the way he was. I learned to adapt to his ways and he to mine. Never have I ever not trusted him and he still hunts, rides his motorcycle but gave up the pool tournaments.
I still shop with friends, and go to fancy restaurants with other family members etc.
Together my hubby and I go to movies, take trips, attended family weddings, visit our children and grandchildren and hang out together at home. I will keep him company while he works on his motorcycle and he helps me clean the house. We have been married almost 40 years. I suspect you will celebrate many anniversaries together.
I would agree that talking with your husband about "how you feel" would be wise. Remember not to be accusatory ~ keep the communication lines open. You have my support.
