Really, we mean it. Give your marriage a boost by finding some way to spend 10 hours together next week and see what happens.

6 - 9 hours

Hmm. Well, your marriage may be able to limp along like this for a while. However, this isn’t enough time for a marriage to really thrive. It’s time to re-think your priorities.

10 or more hours

YES! YAY! You’ve got it. Marriages do best with at least 10 hours of consistent time together as a couple. Folding laundry together counts. Enjoying a sit-com or two counts. Taking a walk counts. Sitting together and watching the kids play (as long as you're not the one playing with the kids) counts. Dinner or tea or a nice glass of wine together all count. Keep up the great work!
