Do You Eat Together As A Family?

Does your family share meals together, or does everyone go their separate ways when mealtime comes. Lately I'm noticing more and more families that do not eat together. Is this practice becoming extinct?

We used to do it(eat together as a family) when I was much younger.

My wife and myself eat together, from the same plate too. That's breakfast, lunch and supper, on my days off work.

The only exception to sharing breakfast and lunch is when I'm at work. I leave pretty early, while my wife and baby daughter are still asleep. And of course on a work day, I'll have lunch at work. Supper is always shared.

No, we do not eat together. I don't even have a dining table, just a kitchen table. And we do not eat the same meal nor eat at the same time either. So it's not uncommon in my home to see me eating rice or drinking 'gari'(cassava) for lunch and somebody else is eating beans and another a take away.

Hmmm depends, sometimes when we are around we eat together but mostly we eat our own time because we all keep different hours.

I love eating @ my grandparents place, we usually used to all go home for the weekend, almost all the grandchildren and the children, we always eat out at the backyard coz we are plenty, its soo much fun. Breakfast, lunch and dinner.
