5 Great wife advice from Moxie Wife,
especially when you get the messages and judgement that it's good to leave your kids and you have to spend time with your husband away. No, it's not necessary or even prudent at times. You can spend time improving your marriage at home. Many times it's the only way. Our first weekend away didn't happen until our oldest was 16 (and grandparents came to stay), and I thought of the kids so much while we were gone.
