    We both work from home and have for most of our relationship so we spend pretty much all day every day together so it’s hard to say what the bare minimum would be. Def over 2 hrs, though. We’re pretty co-dependent, emotionally.

    I didn’t pick an answer from the poll, because it really varies. Some days I’m with Darling Husband nearly all day, and other days we might not see each other at all because of our opposite work schedules. It evens out, though. And both of us are very independent people who enjoy alone time anyway, so it works for us.

    It’s hard to say really. We greatly enjoy spending time together, but we understand each other’s different interests and obligations. I would expect the undivided attention to diminish if/when we have kids too.

    Some days we spend 4-5 hours together, but then there are 3-4 days a week we don’t see each other at all because of opposite work schedules.

    I need an hour or two, but I don’t always get it, especially during the week.

    Don’t really know, as it varies… I picked 1-2 hours, but we do tend to spend nearly all of our spare time together, so that’s probably not accurate.

    And I think we both need that, by the way. Why do you ask?

    We’re in a LDR for the next couple months which blows. We text on and off throughout the day and usuall facetime for 30 min to an hour every day.

    When we’re physically together, it really varies. On weekends we’ll spend the entire day together (not necessarily doing stuff together the whole time but just in the same room at least). Other nights, I go to bed before Fiance gets home from work, so quality time might be a 10 min cuddle when he gets home and I’m half asleep.

    It’s not so much the amount of quality time that matters to us, but the fact that we both prioritize making time to be together every day, even if it’s just a groggy 10 min cuddle in bed.

    southerncharm:  An hour or two. We usually are at the gym 1-2 hours 5 days a week but I consider that quality time. Then when we get home I like to have time to eat and just discuss our day.

    southerncharm:  My Fiance and I work opposite work schedule plus he goes to school full time. We don’t spend quality time together during the week. We spend weekends together. It works out because I like to have a lot of “me time.”

    All day Friday and Sunday, those are my days off(family days).. Hubby picks me up from work everyday at 5:30 usually from that point on we are together. We go shopping at supermarket if we need to, go home cook, homework with my son and the hubby is either helping out in the kitchen or watching tv..bed time for my son is 8:30pm and the rest of the night we cuddle and catch up on our day or tv, shower then bed time…Quality time for us is important..

    Undivided attention… not that much? But a lot of co-working time. We both have schoolwork (him parttime Masters program, me undergrad) so we do a lot of hanging out in the same space working and occasionally talking. We eat dinner together at least 5 days a week but often watch nerdy shows, so also not undivided. We walk to and from our boardgaming group together once a week (2 hrs total) and we talk before bed and when we get home but we spend most of our time together adventuring and working and doing other stuff in close proximity.
