Every one thinks they know what’s best for a relationship but let’s be clear, every relationship is different. What works for Betty and John may not work for Katrina and Ralph. Different strokes for different folks!
However….there is 1 universal rule that [I believe] if applied, it could save the relationship from eternal doom. Have at least 1 date a month! According to a new study, couples that broke away from the kids at least once a month, decreased their chances of ending the relationship by 14 percent.
Maybe it’s the notion that you are putting more effort into your appearance, or going out of your way to engage romance, but either way, having that monthly ‘date night’ is suppose to keep the spark ignited. Out of almost 10,000 married couples that were surveyed, only 30 percent dated once a month. 36 percent of married couple never went on dates. 27 percent went out less than once a month.
Michelle Obama actually told Jimmy Fallon that her and the president still try to do date nights even though it isn’t easy. Maybe that’s their secret!
