I do think that because you are a navy wife your situation may be a little different. We love spending time as a family and that is what we do a lot. But we also enjoy those nights away where we can focus on just each other. When the kids are around we don't really get to have conversations without being interrupted. And because two of our kids are teens we can't stay up late and watch movies alone a lot because they want to watch with us
