Real quality time happens when each other understand the unspoken language. What can give a person better happiness than the spouse understanding what he or she thinks? That requires a lot of living in the present moment. Watching the facial expressions, body language, understanding the reason for the silent treatment, etc. are the skillset needed. If the spouse sighs before reaching the sink after a sumptuous dinner, the other can jump in to put the dishes into the dishwasher, when the spouse asks what to cook today, the other saying, "take it easy, I will order something or cook myself". Rather than considering it as quality time spent with the wife, I address it as how to develop a habit of feeling together and make the spouse feel togetherness. Even a simple phone call from work, "I am thinking of you" establishes togetherness. Quality time together is nothing to do with quantity nor physical presence. "You called me when I was thinking about you" is togetherness.
