A wonderful marriage
Want to go to Home Depot with me? When you see a sweet elderly couple holding hands, that sure inspires you doesn’t it? Well, those couples are probably happy because they’ve been purposeful about spending time together! It turns out; happy couples don’t just spend time together because they are happy; they’re happy because they spent time together! And although a date night is great, it doesn’t have to be something formal; even taking the kids to their activities or going to the grocery store provided hang-out time. Feldhahn’s study, along with one by Dr. Brad Wilcox of the University of Virginia, found that couples who “did stuff” together at least once a week were five times more likely to be “very happy” in their marriages than those who didn’t!
