You're totally right.
Regarding my situation, I have alot of days off during the week because I work day, evening and night shifts on rotation (every two weekends as well), and my GF works 9 to 5 mon-fri. So by default I got alot of time by myself to work on that...
I can tell though, that for people working 8 to 5 together, it can quickly occupy most of the free time and cause conflict...Or on the opposite side it can just remain unfinished indefinately. I would've considered going another way in that situation.
I should've considered that.
