Red Hot Monogamy by Bill and Pam Farrel
Marriage Tips – from “Red Hot Monogamy” – Couples need T.I.M.E. together. Below if what the authors feel you need as a minimum time commitment you should have with your spouse just to maintain your relationship:
Ten to Twenty minutes to talk together ALONE every day.
Invest in a weekly date night (or date lunch or breakfast) together for at least 4 hours (takes a couple hours to emotionally connect and leave some time for love making).Make a
Monthly “day away” policy. At least once a month spend 8-12 uninterrupted hours together to reconnect. You can spend time doing things you BOTH enjoy (exercising, relaxing, errands, etc.) and be sure to have the house or your bedroom alone for some red-hot monogamy during this special time together.
Escape quarterly (or at least biannually) for a 48 hour weekend, and you can keep a special marriage treasure box to save up money for your special times together.
