This is how you do it ;)
If someone says something bad about you, say something nice about them. That way, both of you would be lying.

I usually do it alone at least once a week so far..

I do the:

1. the first blessing
2. the prayer with all of the other blessings
3. barukh she-amar
4. Ashrei
5. yishibakh shimkha malkeynu
6. Ahava raba
7. Shema
8 Mi khamokha
9. Amida
10. Aleinu

takes about 15-20 minutes...pretty much know the words by heart, but still need to look at the prayer book to get it right.

Hazal say that Tefillin is equal to the whole Torah.

 Kool, didn't hear that, but I know that it is very important and one of the 3 covenents that a Jew has with G-d. SHABB-t - is made of  Shin Bet Tet which is Shabb-t, Brit Tefillin.
The Academy of Elijah taught, whoever studies the laws (of the Torah) every day, (he) is guaranteed to have a share in the World to Come.

‏119:139 צִמְּתַתְנִי קִנְאָתִי כִּישָׁכְחוּ דְבָרֶיךָ צָרָי
My zeal incenses me, for my adversaries have forgotten Your words.
‏119:141 צָעִיר אָנֹכִי וְנִבְזֶה פִּקֻּדֶיךָ, לֹא שָׁכָחְתִּי.
 I am young and despised; I have not forgotten Your precepts.

" A fool does not realize, and an unwise person does not understand this (i.e. the following:) When the wicked bloom like grass, and the evildoers blossom (i.e. when they seem extremly successful), it is to destroy them forever (i.e. they are rewarded for their few good deeds in this World, and they will have no portion in the World to Come!)

 A little bit about the Mitzva of Tefillin from www.Israel613.com

 THE IMPORTANCE OF THE MITZVAH OF TEFILLIN
Tefillin are Israel's strength. It is written (Deut. 28:10), "And the peoples of the earth shall see that G-d's Name is called upon you, and they shall be awed by you." This refers to the Tefillin
(Talmud Berachot 6a)

  Happy is the man who wears Tefillin and fathoms their mystery. Zohar 1:129a
  When a man wears Tefillin and Tzitzit, he enters a realm where the Holy One Himself surrounds him with the mystery of the Highest Faith. Ibid. 1: 140b

The Mitzvah of Tefillin encompasses all others. Kidushin 35a
30) A man wearing Tefillin on his arm and head, Tzitzit on his garment, and a Mezuzah on his doorpost, is certain not to sin. Ibid.
31) One who does not wear Tefillin violates eight commandments. ibid 44a
32) He who wears Tefillin is worthy of long life. ibid
The Academy of Elijah taught, whoever studies the laws (of the Torah) every day, (he) is guaranteed to have a share in the World to Come.

This is great news David Ben Ze'ev Aryeh, good for you!
"The Jews will eventually have to face up to what you're dealing with here.  The arabs will never love you for what good you've brought them.  They don't know how to really love.  But hate!  Oh, G-d, can they hate!  And they have a deep, deep, deep resentment because you have jolted them from their delusions of grandeur and shown them for what they are-a decadent, savage people controlled by a religion that has stripped them of all human ambition . . . except for the few cruel enough and arrogant enough to command them as one commands a mob of sheep.  You are dealing with a mad society and you'd better learn how to control it."

May one day you and your wife wrap each other in Tfillin..

Gd forbid..just kidding

May one day your wife embrace you once you put your Tfillin away each morning you pray at home.
