Aside from how your day went and the kids, what you do you discuss at the dinner table with your spouse?

Every day is a different day at the dinner table. Sometimes, we discuss his future prospects in is job, and what should I do apart from being a stay at home mom. Should I study again, or take up some language course? At times, we discuss some relative, and the discussion goes haywire, and reach to his family, my family and we end up arguing at the dinner table. And there are times, when we talk about travel plans, recipes, business idea that we would work upon. And sometimes just random stuff about some video, movie, song that he has seen or I have.

Oftentimes, we eat while watching television at home. And while watching news, we react to certain topics be it about current events, lifestyle, sports, entertainment and sometimes even commercials. I recall once, we almost had a petty argument about commercials on alcoholic beverages. I pointed out why most of the time, sexy women are always associated with these types of commercials. He said there's nothing wrong with it. From intellectual topics down to the silly ones, we just never run out of ideas to share with each other.

We talk alot of things like the news and since we're still young and internet freak, we sometimes talk about viral things of the day. You know, like meme, videos, or some hashtag and laugh about it together. And depends on the day, we discuss about plan. Like in Wednesday night, we usually talk about what we'll do on the weekend so when the weekend comes we don't waste our time to arrange a plan anymore. :D

Sad to say, usually i don't talk much to my partner about our daily life or kids development. We work together but we just don't seem to be able to talk and communicate properly. He don't seem interested in the kids's work or progress. Especially when our elder son is going thru spelling and test. Additional classes on monday & tuesday which he don't bother asking how was it and all. Sighs.

My partner is an entrepreneur by heart, so often we discuss about the potential ideas or what other start ups or our friends are doing. It's quite an informative discussion. And ya we talk about other usual stuff, about upcoming movies, friends we recently got in touch with, on going news, our families, weekend plans or sometimes we just sit quietly and enjoy our dinner with each other.

Talked about these with my wife randomly: Latest developments at work, International & domestic news, Future domestic plans for ourselves, our house and our baby, Future holiday destinations for our small family, Etc.... There should be no boundaries between husband & wife. To maintain Marriage = both parties need to constantly communicate & trust one another.

Growing up, I loved going to dinner at a good friend's house because their conversations were just so interesting. They were a very intellectual family, so they would choose a trending news item and discuss that topic exclusively. I always learned a lot, and over time, I made sure that I was well read and up to date with the news just so I could keep up!

Apart from topics you mentioned above, our favorite topic is discussing about our next big trip. This generally gets us going :) We discuss about our future plans be it our careers, finance, new movies that we don't wanna miss, new restaurants we want to try, upcoming social visits and the list goes on!!

Aaaaaaanything at all! Having a partner is like having a full-time best friend with you. My husband and I talk about the good stuff in life - food, history, friends, family, hobby... Anything positive. We don't usually do confrontations during meal time, that'll be done when our kid is already asleep.

Usually we will talk about our past. As my husband and i got married really fast after knowing each other. We have yet to really 'dated' each other to know each other well. So each time we have a chance to sit down and have a proper meal together. We will be talking about our own past.
