Date night ideas

Having a regular date night can save your marriage. Seriously.

Going out for a date with your spouse or partner on a regular basis strengthens your bond as a couple and can reignite romance and passion between you.

According to a study by the Marriage Foundation, couples who have a monthly date night are 14% less likely to break up.

Another recent study by The National Marriage Project called "The Date Night Opportunity" confirmed that date nights foster stronger relationships and marriages.

They cited five specific benefits from couples regularly going on date nights:

Couples are less distracted by children, work, and other responsibilities, giving them the chance to talk about important topics and mutual pursuits and goals.
