Finding time to play golf when you’re married

I am married with one year old child, and manage to spend a lot of my time on the golf course. Because of this, my married friends are curious about how i manage my time and what i’m doing differently, since they are usually stuck with their kids. I’m glad to share my experience on taking care of children, but i feel like my friends aren’t the only ones looking for solutions, and whole world is missing out on these tricks that can easily free up some time for parents and allow you to have fun once in a while. I think it’s very important for married people to have some time they can spend separately. It makes the time spent together much more enjoyable.

 First of all, if you are a guy, you need to learn how to talk to your wife about taking time off. You also need to allow your wife to go out once in a while, so both of you are on level grounds. That way, you can give her a proposition, like “would you prefer if i went out golfing in the afternoon, or later in the evening?” And since she’s getting time of as well, she’ll be glad to let you go and she will feel like in charge. Because the question is constructed in a way that puts her in charge. Plus, she’ll have time to prepare for alone time with baby, so she can invite friends or whatever she wants. Whenever i tell my wife that i have to go, she usually puts our kid to sleep, so she doesn’t have to stress out while being alone. And i usually finish my golfing trips in three or four hours, so baby wakes up right when i arrive, so no harm done. And i also have to mention that our girl’s character is very calm so she isn’t hard to take care of, that probably helps a lot as well. And one more thing, you should always be checking your schedule with your wife. Because there might be unexpected times when you will be free to go, but won’t be able to go golfing because of lack of preparing. And it’s not just about taking time off. I also think that couples should manage their funds and decide what to spend it on together, so you should consult your significant other if you’re planning to get one of those best seniors golf clubs they keep releasing.

 If your wife isn’t considerate or doesn’t let you out under any circumstances, there’s always option to lie. Lie about going to work and go to the golf course for the whole day instead. Or leave your phone in your car and lie about it being an accident. But i don’t recommend these tactics, as they’re morally wrong, as the child is both of yours and you should take your part of responsibility. And i’ve rarely seen any woman who doesn’t respond to calm and clear arguments that are beneficial for both of you, so it’s all up to you.
