Now that the pandemic is starting to ease, weddings are filling up everyones’ schedules and the amount of newly-weds is increasing. So naturally, a Reddit post has gone viral which breaks down the key to a happy marriage.

The method is something called the “2-2-2” rule.  It’s is designed to help keep the spark alive, and a lot of experts seem to like it.

So what is it? The 2-2-2 rule says each “2” is a reminder for something different.

1.  The first “2” means a date night every two weeks.
Or, two dates a month if that’s easier to remember.

2.  The second “2” stands for a weekend away every two months.

This of course can be 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 kids, so you can just spend time with each other and relax.
