Re: Is it Unreasonable...
In the early days of being married, and before the existence of cell phones, Mr. IMFAR and I were both in college. As a single person, I was used to coming and going and not having to tell anyone. One afternoon I went somewhere and didn't come home until late, not realizing that I had someone waiting for me at home who might actually care that I was not home, or that they didn't know where I was, or when I was coming home.
When I walked in the door, he looked at me and said nonchalantly, "Do you live here?" We proceeded to talk about the need to let each other know where we were and how long we would be gone.
From that moment on I let him know that I was going somewhere and when I expected to be back. He did the same for me.
Yes, it is just common courtesy to let the spouse know what you are doing, who with, where you will be, and when you'll be back.
