My wife is also a practitioner (although we have different Root Gurus). However, she still works. So she's not home when I'm practicing. I get up at 4 AM and practice till 6 PM with three breaks (breakfast, lunch, and mid-late afternoon). On the weekends, I practice less in order to do chores and be with my wife. From 6-9 PM, I hang out with my wife unless it is a special Dharma day. In that case, we do puja together at home or at a local Nyingma center. We'll see what happens when she also retires in 18 months or so. She probably won't devote herself to retreat the way I have. She's a gregarious people-person. However, she's also very independent and is also an artist (meaning she will probably spend more time in her studio). So I don't foresee my "retreat" changing markedly even after she retires. We will probably go to more drubchen, retreats, and teachings together after she retires.
But, all that being said, my health condition forces me to live day to day. Hence any and all of the above is just Dawa Drakpa's fantasy.
