DH HATES it when we don't eat together so we always do - whatever the meal it's together.

Cooking is like love, it should be entered into with abandon or not at all. Oregon native transplanted to Chicago....

my family does when we can get together occasionally on the holidays or when we can all get together another time but that's rare. his family does everytime they have some kind of gathering which is about once a month.

We always eat in the kitchen,,always have, always will.
My boys eat in their living rooms but then it's their mess and their carpet..LOL They never ate in the L.R. at home.

DH and I will have a snack or munchies in the L.R. now while watching TV or reading but we do have a small TV on the kitchen table.

The dinning room and china are a waste..never use it, eat off of paper plates most of the time..(Paul's choice to make it easier on me) For years John has said " That's right mom, keep the china all unbroken so I can do it later on in life..he was only 10 at the time when we bought it while in Korea..Noritaka..second set.
May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.

Same here, wasabi. Skidder and I sit in the living room and watch TV with dinner. When my family comes over for dinner we sit together in the kitchen with no TV. That is what we did when I was younger.

growing up, not only did you have to be at the table at 6pm sharp, but clean and properly dressed (no sleeveless shirts, anyway). it was probably the only rule in our house.
dw and i have almost always eaten together, unless i'm working really late, like past 9pm. we also wait for each other to start if one of us is delayed or interrupted. sometimes, you could be hurtin for food, with a big hot plate ready to be inhaled, but we always wait until whatever interrupted one of us is dealt with.

As I was growing up we had to sit at the table. Now, me and my daughters sit at the table and Joe sits and eats by the computer. Sometimes he will sit at the table with us but, that's if I drag him there. He's always on this computer when he's home.

When my hubby is home we always eat together. Maybe not at the table all the time but don't know to many folks that do anymore. We are always surrounded by the 2 cats and 2 dogs looking for their yummies too.

Growing up we always ate at the kitchen table together as a family except on some Sundays when we would have pizza in front of the TV.

My wife and I usually eat in front of the TV now, but not always. It sort of boils down to how messy the meal is. If there is a good possibility that it will end up on the couch then we will eat in the kitchen

Once our daughter is old enough to eat with us though that will all change. We will have meals at the table together with no TV. Both DW and I feel very strongly that this is important.
