Is the “2-2-2” Rule the Key to a Happy Marriage?
I don’t know if this is the key to a happy marriage or not, but it’s simple enough to remember . . .
Reddit has been talking about something called the “2-2-2” rule for a while. It’s supposed to help keep the spark alive, and a lot of experts seem to like it. So what does “2-2-2” mean? Each “2” is a reminder for something different.
Here’s what each one is supposed to remind you to do . . .
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.
