24/7 With Your Spouse?

The most surprising question I have been asked has been whether we think we can stand being together all the time in a small RV. I realize this lifestyle is not for everyone, but being together all the time has never been an issue for us.

It may sound cliche, but Kevin and I are best friends. We truly enjoy spending time together. We also realize that everyone needs their "space". So, if one or the other of us needs to be alone for a while, the other does not get offended. We have friends, but are not all that social. We are "homebodies" and enjoy our time together at home. I have read on many fulltimer blogs that making friends is very easy in the fulltime community. I look forward to joining that community and making those friendships!

We are so looking forward to exploring this amazing country together. Since we are too young to retire, we plan to work along the way. Again, this is not a problem for us as we work well together.

If you are considering the fulltiming lifestyle, I would urge you to really think about spending most of your time together with your spouse. Many people have told us they couldn't do it. Just one more thing to contemplate before you dive in.
