Who was the last person you ate dinner with?
Family meals are such a funny thing these days. As a kid we always ate dinner together as a family. We also had a family brunch every Saturday and Sunday. As we got older and people’s schedules became more hectic things changed and fluctuated, but we managed to still have a family dinner more nights than not.
These days, I suppose it all depends on what mood everyone is in and what each of us is up to. Sometimes we all eat together. Other times we all eat separately. Somedays a couple of us eat together why the other one does their thing.
I don’t really know people, particularly young adults, who have regular family dinners anymore. I can see why parents get so emotional when their kids go to university. Once the kids leave for college, the chances of having regular family meals, even after leaving university, go down significantly.
