Me time

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?
