I am told that researchers took a survey of people who described their relationship as “happy” or “very happy”. The most common traits of their relationship included:
(1) 4 hugs a day.
(2) Spending at least 22 periods of “quality time” together every month, like going for a walk or sharing a meal.
(3) 7 nights at home together every month.
(4) 2 romantic walks a month and at least one visit to a bar, restaurant or the movies every month without the kids or other friends.
(5) And couples should spend at least one evening away from their partner each month, with other friends.
It is worth a try.
