It’s not always easy for parents to plan a regular date night. Let’s face it, most of the time we just want an early night when we have times to ourselves!

A study has found that it’s extremely healthy for couples to keep their marriage ‘on track’ by regularly doing things together.

Date nights are important, experts say

Researchers at the University of Lincoln pulled data from one of the UK’s biggest household surveys that involved 10,000 mums in the UK.

When they looked at why couples stayed together, they found those who are bit older, have a degree and are married were more likely to have a strong relationship.

What’s more, they also found that those who had regular date nights were also more likely to stay together compared to those who rarely went out together.

In fact, the odds of couples separating who went out at least every month together was 14% lower compared to couples that didn’t have date nights.

“As far as we know, this is the first ever empirical test of the effectiveness of date nights,” the study report reads.“It shows that occasional date nights reinforce and strengthen stability.

“So why do married couples seem to benefit additionally from the occasional date night out whereas cohabiting couples don’t?

“Perhaps it boils down to the original assumption behind date nights. By going out every so often, married couples reinforce the importance of their relationship.”

So there you have it. Get the hubby to book a babysitter, stat!
