So Friday night I was telling L how this expert in couples therapy conducted a study: he took 100 couples and divided them into two groups. In group 1 he told them to just keep doing what they normally do, and in group 2 he said try something new each week together. It can be something simple like try a new coffee shop or something bigger like go rock climbing for the first time. Group 2 showed an increase in overall happiness by about 20% after 6 weeks of trying this, and group 1 stayed the same.
So we decided who needs a relationship to try new things?! And so this is what we did on Saturday:
So, they are simple new things, but it was a great Saturday. And our goal is to do a new thing together each week. Ideas?!?
