WHAT THE RESEARCH SAYS...
about dating your spouse!
❤ Changing Lives!
Studies show "routine date nights" foster better communication, build attachment, increase appreciation of relationship, decrease stress, plus increase intimacy, affection, & sex.
Here are the research-based reasons why dating your spouse/sweetheart is important for you to take seriously:
You’ll each be happier & feel like
When you spend time each week with your sweetheart, you let them know they matter to you and you know they’re prioritizing you, too.
[The effects of this have been measured. With couples who spend date time with their spouse every week, women are 4x happier and men are 2.5x happier than couples who don’t.]
divorce-proofing your marriage!
This may seem obvious, but couples who don’t have at least one meaningful connection a week with their mate are more likely to contemplate divorce than those who do.
[Women are 4x more likely to initiate divorce and men are 2.5x more prone to initiate divorce when compared to couples who regularly take time every week to connect.]
Your sex life will be better & more satisfying!
When you make the investment to consistently spend time together every week, you’ll feel closer to your mate and you’ll find them more attractive too.
[This combination makes for great sex! The research shows that sexual satisfaction is 3.3x greater for men and is 3.5x greater for women simply because of making the commitment to connect with each other every week.]

This Weekly Routine Is Statistically Proven to Save Your Relationship
by Sam Benson Smith @ Readers Digest Updated: Aug. 22, 2017
Keeping a relationship healthy is like walking a tightrope: it requires balance, years of practice, and is frequently performed in front of a large, carnival-attending crowd. Actually, scratch that last part.
Schedules can be hectic, and if you’re raising kids, you barely have enough time to sleep, let alone give your relationship plenty of extra love. But a new study from the University of Virginia has found that designating a slot of time each week for “date night” can work wonders for keeping a relationship healthy.
This Is How Many Date Nights You Need for a Successful Marriage
by Andrea Fowler Updated Apr 12, 2019
Excerpt from article:
Harry Benson from the Marriage Foundation and Steve McKay from the University of Lincoln studied a group of almost 10,000 couples with a young child to find out what date-night habits the most successful couples had in common.
The groups were monitored over the next 10 years, and turns out, the couples who had date nights once a month had the highest odds of staying together compared with the other groups. But that was only true for married couples, not couples who simply lived together (cohabiting couples).
