Me-time is oxygen in a helps you survive by connecting to your inner self. Clarity of thought, new ideas, better analysis of mistakes is only possible in your me-time. Besides of course pursuing your own hobbies and interests, which your partner may not enjoy.

Does one have a right to have a 'me-time' away from ones partner? When in a relationship, one is expected to be with ones partner - as I said expected to be! Is this fair? Can one of them not have a right to a 'me-time', where s/he spends time with herself or with her friends or whatever she wants to do?

Is 'me-time' unfair to the other partner? Or are you stuck for life with your partner with no individual time for yourself?

We tend to take our close ones for granted while maintaining the veneer of politeness and courtesy towards outsiders. That's because we want to maintain our image in society. At home or with our own people we are our own unpolished rude selves. But it's those close ones who are going to remain with us through life, so we better remember that. And show kindness and courtesy towards them too.

I have seen many people behaving rudely to their spouses but very sweet and polite with outsiders.  Whats the reason behind it??
