Have you ever heard of the '2-2-2' Rule? Apparently it's the secret to a happy marriage. This is how it's supposed to work:
1. The first "2" means a date night every two weeks.
Or, two dates a month if that's easier to remember. It's not a hard-and-fast rule, just a guideline.
2. The second "2" stands for a weekend away every two months.
That's a tough one if you're a parent. So if you can't swing it, just something a little more special than a normal date night.
3. The third "2" means a full week away every two years.
Ideally, WITHOUT your kids, so you can just spend time with each other and relax.
Have you tried this? How's it working out?
