Of all the Love Languages we touched on so far, this one is my absolute FAVORITE.  Yup, It’s time to spend some Quality Time with your main man. Listen, with everything we have on our plates as moms, working women, and wives it can be really easy to neglect this love language. Even I’m guilty that (and this is my primary love language *gasp*). But I found hope in this one simple tip. Are you ready for it?

Quality over Quantity.  That’s it! That’s the tip.
You don’t have to commit huge chunks of your day to spending time with your husband (although how nice would that be?!). But what you need to make sure of is that the time you get to spend together is intentional, engaging, and high quality.
If you are in the same room but in two different worlds, you are not practicing QUALITY time. To master this love language, you have to become a student of your spouse. Learn what activities he considers to be quality time activities and pursue those things with your husband.

The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Lasts

 For example, in my home (for me), watching TV together doesn’t count as quality time. It doesn’t give me the connection I need or desire from my husband. But for him, he loves nothing more than to share a favorite movie (of his) with me. To him that’s special. So when I give him the gift of quality I choose to cuddle up with him and watch a movie because I know connecting in that way is valuable to him. When he gives me the gift of quality time he makes sure it’s something active like a card game, a walk, or just engaging in conversation. See how that works?
