Honestly my advice is to try and bring her into your enjoyable hobby some. Bring her out wednesday night or take her on a lazy sunday cruise. if the wife likes the hobby you can always spend more time and money on it

This is ONE reason why I am about to end an almost-4-year relationship. Well, there are lots of other reasons but I think - unless one is married - being in a relationship either brings down time for the bike - or the bike brings down time for the girl.

If we are meant for each other, then she'll be there and I'll be here. If not, life goes on.

Not like I have a busy sched... Lets peek:

wake up - school - work - bike - home - interwebz

On top of that, I srsly need to spend time either walking or working out.

When I was single I used to ride every Sunday, at least do 2 track days a month, and 3 or 4 times a year I went to either Arkansas or Hill County. Now I do less than 1/2 of that...do I miss it? Of course, but I prefer time that I spend with my wife doing married people stuff. I still ride on some Sundays, often with her on the back of the bike. I still do trackdays - one a month when I am not working.

I think like others that you should cut going out with your bike by 1/2 - or maybe get your wife involved.

It depends on what you want
No one can tell you how to spend your time

Compromise and communication goes along way to make BOTH HAPPY

If she still lights your fire since day one treat her like it.Compliment her,hold her hand,make date nights,etc..

Marriage is just a tax break

A relationship is an advanture that you enjoy TOGETHER with your kids.

no you are not a bad husband...starting this thread shows you give a . But yeah like mentioned above, if she is happy then its all good. Maybe she gets worried like my wife gets!! Who knows, maybe you should not do the pp1 and sunday ride for a week and surprise her with something she likes to do. THis will go a long way and pay off in the end. I only go riding with you guys, on sunday, every so often cause my wife worries like .

If you want your marriage to last, you have to wake up every day with the mindset of "what can I do to make her happy today." She wants you to spend quality time with her doing things that you both enjoy. You have to court your wife for the rest of your life. That's just the way it is and the way women are, brother

Send a message via Yahoo to Pachuco
i would try to get her to do her own thing. Reconnect with old friends or something. If she has nothing to do, she will make sure you know that everytime

Sundays i like to go out and do some back roads early in the morning! then i would spend time with my kids after riding on Sundays and after work everyday.

my son and i would play with the pocket bikes after i finish from work then i would ether go to the gym @ 9pm or go home and go to sleep and sometimes watch a movie at home.

i don't drink or smoke....so its not like im out everyday drinking, i don't get home after 12am and party everyday at night, but the only thing i ask my wife and for some freedom on me getting to go out with the guys every now and then, is it too much for me to ask???

she said that her problem is that she wants go to out....but she said that im the one always going out with my friends and i am never home and never spend time doing anything.

(we been marry for over 5 years) i was like WTF is it that you wanna do?? we are not going out like high school.... i know am a sometimes but really?? we do things together, not everyday..but we do every other day during the week, catch a movie that just came out, or go out for a little cruise on the bike.

married riders...does your bike gets in your way with your family?? does anyone has the same problem as i do??

GIVE ME YOUR INPUT PEOPLE... maybe i can open my eyes and see WTF is it that im doing wrong here?
I didn't take the time to read what everyone else told you, but here is my honest opinion. First off, the 5 year mark is the tough area for a marriage. You are past the comfort zone, and you are getting to where little things that have annoyed each other have hit that point where you are tired of letting it go by. With that said, women are needy creatures by nature. They require attention constantly. You have to meet in the middle. When you spend all day at work, the couple hours you are home in the evening does not count as quality time to most of them. You have to specifically do something with them outside of the house. I don't go riding in the evenings, but I also have the luxury of riding my bike to work almost every day so at least I get some saddle time. You need to alternate weeks. If you go out on Wednesday, give her something to do with you on Sunday and vice versus. This will make your life easier. Show her you are making an effort. She will make your life if you don't. They are good at that. You made the choice of having a life partner, and your love for riding must be something you don't share with her. Find something you both enjoy doing TOGETHER and alternate those with your bike rides. Good luck bro.

sounds like you are prioritizing....sadly you're putting riding before your wife and kids in her/their eyes and that's where it counts...
