I, too, am married (12 years next week) and have 2 small children and this has an incredible impact on our lives.
You can't just hop into the car and run down to the store anymore.
You can't leave the house without 30 minutes notice.
You can't spend the night somewhere without bringing enough equipment to outfit a battallion.
Who do you leave your kids with if you go away for more than a few hours?
I can't go on any Drives outside of my immediate area because my wife works every Friday and Saturday night....who takes care of my kids?
In the 4500 miles that I drove my M Roadster, my wife was with me for about 5 miles. She has only been in my 911 once.
Those of you that are not married or don't have children should APPRECIATE every mile that you drive with your SO.........
