40 Days to a Better Marriage Tip: Tues 3/5–Make Plans to Share a New Experience

Studies on marital satisfaction show that couples feel closer when they make a habit of periodically sharing new experiences.  You don’t have to go on a ’round the world vacation.  Trying a new restaurant, taking a class, doing a home-improvement project, and other experiences like it all count.  When a couple shares a new experience, they learn something about life and each other and they feel better about each other because of it.  Today, think of a new thing you’ve wanted to do or try and suggest doing it together with your spouse!
