Lets share our opinion on the following.. if it was of any help in your marriage... or irrelevant. I had a lot of creative hobbies that kept me busy in the first year of marriage which was quite non happening and I diverted my energies to creativity in order to keep my sanity & weigh achievements at the end of day. Even today when am over-stressed some paint brush, fabric creativity or window shopping releases off a lot of energy from me. In school we see kids being put to so many extra-carriculars or creative hobbies for an overall development.. however when one comes to colleage and marriage they become one track single processors and over focussed to one area of life to expect too many returns. I see quite a few people around me for who are set to thinking when asked "Whats your hobby" and their answer typically fits into EAT, SLEEP, CHAT, HOUSEHOLD chore => unpaid servant, CALL parents, KITTY parties and nothing to do.. very bored.. over busy husband to take for outing anywhere... How many of you think its a Boon in order to keep a partner busy when they're not able to get 100% returns in marriage or a Bane that you dint divert your energy to set things right from the begining.. if at all possible in 1 marriage? Also are you dependent on your spouse for hobby?
