Couples Who Play Together Stay Together

Here's a great (short) article by Jeff Herring that was published in the Pittsburgh-Tribune Review recently:

"All I wanna do is have some fun, I've got a feelin' I'm not the only one."
--Sheryl Crow

One reason this song was so popular, and is still so recognizable, is that so many individual and couples feel this way. When was the last time you had fun as a couple?

If it is has been awhile, then we can say two things about you with a high degree of accuracy:
1. You are part of a very big club, and
2. The two of you are drifting apart.

It's so easy to get caught up in the hecticness of life that we forget to have fun with our partner. Before we know it, we have grown apart and don't have a clue how it happened. As a couple, make a list of all the things you like to do for fun. The list can include things you usually do together as well as thing you usually do apart. Then begin to pick things from the list, find a time to do them, and then do them.

Sounds simple doesn't it? I guess I could make it more complicated for you, but why? The couple that laughs and plays together has a much better chance of staying happy and staying together.

Great advice Jeff! And to make it even easier for you to start "playing" together soon, you can get my "May Play Basket Special" right now. I made it up especially for this reason! Have fun!
