My fiance and I seem to keep coming back to to topic of quality time. I always want more of it and he always wants to do other things. We spend the weekends together dining out, going to movies, etc, but during the week we both do our own thing. I’m curious to know how much quality time do you spend with your SO on a weekday? I will define quality time as being together and participating in the same activity.

we don’t live together yet but see each other regularly during the week as well as the weekends, during the week we usually see each other for 2-3 hours 🙂

Unfortunately I had to vote for <30 minutes. He works out of town for a living and is gone Monday-Friday 45 weeks of the year. We talk on the phone but it’s rarely more than a recap of our days. The only day we actually get to spend time together is Sunday. SAD FACE.

Hard to say – we spend most evenings together, but we watch more tv than we ought to (which I don’t think ought to count as quality time…). Maybe mix it up – intersperse your own thing on weekends, and make a bit more quality time on the weekdays?

Right now were spending a crap tun of time together but it’s kind of a lopsided argument. Right now my Fiance just finished coaching wrestling but is still laid off until about April so last week during my spring break we spent over 5+ hours in the day meeting with vendors, going to lunch, talking, shopping, etc. I also come home from class around 1 or 2pm every day so we spend the rest of the day talking and hanging out as well. If I have to work we still spend about 3-4 hours a day hanging out and eating lunch or talking.
When he goes back to work though… he will be working 12-14hour days and I work at night so I might only see him for 1 hour a day if that. What I’m trying to get at is that it ebbs and flows. Right now I truly value the amount of time were spending together and it makes me really happy but also I can get into a mode where I just want to be alone and then we will not spend as much time together either. It never seems to stay the same.

My husband has really flexible work hours, so normally he is in the office around 10am and home by about 5 or 6 for dinner. This leaves me the morning with him (while we are getting kids out the door, we wake up at 7am) and the evening after dinner and the kids have been put into bed. He also works from home a day or two every two weeks!
It seems to be especially important for us to spend time just him and I, especially because we have kids! The focus is on them so much during the day that we make sure to set aside time where we can say “Hey, what’s up?”!

for us it really depends on the day. We both work 12 hour days and everyother weekend, I work some nights, we have gone a week with out seeing eachother (and we live in the same house) its so weird but if im working nights and he is on days then I am gone by the time he gets home and he is gone by the time I get home. usually we get about an hour or 2 if we are both on days. But if we are both off we try to spend the day together. We also both work at the same place so I get to see him sometimes during the day 🙂

We’re both in school and only have class about four hours a day each so we spend around 4-5 hours together each day hanging out or going out (:

When we both work it’s about 1-2 hours. On Fridays it’s usually a little more than that- 2-3 hours if not all day (I don’t work every Friday, either does SO).

I voted 5+ hours. We both work from home (for the time being), our car just died, and we moved to a new city where we know a total of 6 people. Until he starts his new job on the 20th, we will spend 24 hours with each other. Haha
When he starts his full time job though, I expect we’ll still spend the majoirty of our evenings together.

It depends… Darling Husband rotates weeks of days, afternoons and graveyards, so 2/3 weeks we don’t see eachother at all on weeknights, and one we have dinner together before he goes to bed to be up at 4am.

Not much. Most of the time on a weekday Darling Husband isn’t here. I see him on weekends. We do try to talk on the phone fairly regularly, some days are more quality calls than others, dunno if that counts.

It does depend but I am always stressing that family is first. He could easily work 12-14 hour days but I am on top of him to put us first. 2-3 hours ish even if it is a busy week for him.

Hmm probably max two hours if we are lucky. With my volleyball in full swing with multiple leagues going at once I am playing up to five nights a week. Sometimes I have to go directly from work and get home between 9-10 pm leaving us little “us” time before bed.
He is very understanding of my dedication and we make it work by communication and discussion before I commit to anything. Thankfully we have Saturdays for us time. 🙂

My husband works night shift so on the weekdays he stays up until about 11AM to 12PM (he gets home around 9-9:30AM) so we have that time together. 2-3 hours. Then he wakes up only about 1 hour-30 minutes until he has to leave for work, to make up for not going to bed when he first gets home I let him sleep in.
So around 2-4 hours, depending. (He is here all day, but he is asleep.) So I don’t count that as spending time with him. 😛
