You can say that if it were not for our cell phone, my wife and I would have found it difficult to have a conversation.
Usually when we are together, we are in a rush to finish our household chores and other than asking and answering questions there is no conversation as such. If you add our demanding daughter to this mix, the opportunity to converse is negligible.
This is where our cell phones come into play. It gives us the flexibility to hold conversations when we can. Otherwise, we would have to make time for it and would have reduced it to a chore.
Truly, these snatches of conversation were our 'quality time' and if it were not for these moments, our marriage would have reduced to charade.
