There are no absolute right and wrong answers to such questions. If whatever amount of time a couple are spending together is causing some distress to either or both of them, then maybe it is too much. If you are both engaged in busy, highly stressed jobs, especially if these themselves include a high degree of stressful people contact, it would be very understandable that you might both value more quiet time. This may include time spent alone, preferably on peaceful and relaxing pastimes ; and perhaps also choosing to spend some of your time together in less demanding, quiet pursuits, lisening to quiet music, reading --- even if in the same room, not necessarily conversing and active.
It is possible for folks to work too hard at a relationship, without enjoying some time to just let it be.
