#017: Are You Spending Too Much Time Together?

Are you and your partner spending too much time together? Do friends and family tell you they barely see you anymore? Are you guys spending quality time together or just time together?

At the beginning of a relationship, you spend a lot of time with each other which makes perfect sense. You want to spend every waking hour with your new love. To some, it may look like spending too much time together.  It is also common, that after a few years in the relationship, you will no longer have the need to spend that much time together anymore.  But what happens if you have to spend many hours together due to working at the same office? How much time spent together is too much? We answer this question on this podcast episode.

It is completely natural to want to spend time with your partner more than any other person. However, spending too much time together and having almost no time apart can hinder the relationship itself. Surely, it also influences the two of you as individuals. This episode was inspired by a listener’s question. Our listener works at the same place doing the same shifts with her boyfriend. She was concerned that the ample time they spend together is making their relationship toxic.

Her questions we answer on the podcast are:

  1. How much time spent together is too much?
  2. What are some ways to separate work life and home life?

On this episode of Relationships Uncomplicated podcast, along with my co-host, we talk about what couples should consider when deciding to spend time together or apart. Hint… creating healthy boundaries around time. We also give you 3 tips you can start implementing right away to help you separate home and work life.

Special thank you to our listener who sent us an inspiring relationship question.

Stay tuned!
