    Well, we both work, and sometimes we spend the evenings together, sometimes we see friends/do our own thing. On weeknights, probably about 2-3 hours on average. On Sundays it’s 24/7 . . . Saturdays it’s a crapshoot.

    I guess 5-6 hours a day during the week, not counting sleeping (we live together). He works during the day and I go to school in the evenings, so we spend time/have dinner together when I get home from class and I see him before he leaves for work in the morning.

    We usually spend the whole weekend together, though.

    I work first shift and he often works second shift. Some days I see him for about 20 minutes when we’re both concious. Other days we spend the entire day together. It really varies based on his schedule. He has to close for the next three weeks which means he gets home at my bed time so I won’t be seeing him much.

    On average, we spend about 3-4 hours a day together. This would be more but he works Monday-Friday 8-4.30, whereas I work Saturdays 2.30-10.30, Sundays all day, and Monday 4-10; meaning that we don’t get weekends together as most couples do.

    This will increase when I eventually complete my studies and get a full-time, Monday-Friday job, but only because we’ll get weekends together; week days will be much the same, about 3-4 hours after work and before bed.

    We commute together generally, unless I have some meetings for my volunteer work.  So, 1 hour in the AM, 5-6 at night, likely on average 4-5 per weekday.  We’re often together all of the weekends.  He’ll travel 6x a year, for ~3-5 days each time – say 4-5x for work, 1-2x for personal (like this year he has two bachelor parties).  It’s really mostly my non-profit work that separates us.  But sometimes he’ll go over to one of his friends place w/o me, or I’ll have gals night.

    During the work week, it is like 3-4 hours a day. 

    However, on the weekends we usually spend the entire time together. Our routine is either Fri go out with friends, Sat is either a date night in our out, and Sundays are our day together alone.

    On weekdays: 5-6 hours. he get’s home at 5 and depending on if he goes to bed at 10 or 11 we really do get 5 or 6 hours lol.

    On weekends: all day unless he has Guard which is only once a month.

    On weekdays, it’s like 3-4 hours a day when we’re not sleeping. We both work all day, I workout after work a few times a week, so there’s not a lot of us-time while we’re awake. But we spend most weekends together, although he works occasionally.

    We work in the same department, so we’re together pretty much 24/7. We have our own desks and whatnot obviously, but I can see him from where I sit lol.

    I would say anywhere from 2-4 hours on a weekday. It varies on the weekend depending on our plans, but we always try to spend one whole day together, usually doing errands. And we are usually together most of the second day as well, but I would say there are also weekends where we don’t have a ton of time together too.

    LDR… boo. So when we do see each other we are around each other 24/7, unless I am visiting him and he needs to go to work, in which case it’s every moment he isn’t at work. 🙂

    we are both retired and spend 24/7 with each other.  keep in mind, we still do our own thing during the day but we pretty much see each other all of the time.  we love spending time together and never get sick of it.

    I work two jobs totaling about 65 hours a week and he is working upwards of 70 hours a week. I see him one or two nights during the work week for about 4 hours and then depending upon how long one of us is working on the weekends, between 4-6 hours a day on the weekend. It sucks. But, we make it work.

    Not including sleeping, probably around 7 hours of the day.  We work next to eachother so we car pool and eat lunch together every day.  We just moved so we have no friends besides one another.  We’re together most of the time!
