about dating your spouse!

❤  Changing date at a time! 

Studies show "routine date nights" with your significant other can foster better communication, build attachment, increase appreciation of relationship & spouse, increase intimacy, increase affection, & improve sex...PLUS decrease stress, loneliness, bitterness, resentment, and anger!

Here are the research-based reasons why

dating your spouse/sweetheart

is important for you two to take seriously:

You’ll each be happier & feel like 

you matter!

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.]

You’ll be 

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.]
