We Decided That Family Dinners Were Not Important

    We don’t have family meals either. My husband works a full-time job and farms with his dad so he gets home late every night. I feed the kids around 5:30 or 6 and then eat with my husband later in the evening after the kids are in bed. It’s a great way for us to keep our marriage on the front burner and I find it’s less stressful than trying to eat a meal while combating the usual dinner time craziness with 4 picky kiddos. We do eat together as a family every Friday night when we eat supper at my in-laws and on Sundays after church. You’re right…each family has to do what works best for them!

      Thank you, Hannah! Although we are focusing on more family dinners, once a week we do set aside an evening for takeout and eating after our kids are down, and yes–it is so good for a marriage! Date night in 🙂
