If you consider ALL time with your spouse....as time well spent (and therefore "quality") you will increase your compatibility almost by osmosis. It's hard to "find" time in this busy world, but if you plan time with your spouse in the way you plan time for other things....the rewards are enormous. Especially if your marriage is disconnected or become less intense....time, and lots of it is vital. That doesn't mean I don't agree with the "quality" part....because research shows that what you do with your time together can impact your relationship in a big way. To keep your marriage passionate....be each others main recreational partner....spend your most enjoyable times together. New experience creates the biochemistry that heightens passion.....so do new and exciting things together (big and small).
Even desending opinions welcome, ALWAYS.
Keep us thinking.
