Resources: The Date Night Opportunity by Brad Wilcox and Jeff Dew

What Does Couple Time Tell Us About the Potential Value of Date Nights?

The Date Night Opportunity, the report seeks to answer three important questions about the potential value of date nights for contemporary couples:

  1. How might date nights improve the quality of relationships for couples?
  2. Is one-on-one couple time associated with higher-quality relationships and lower divorce rates among couples?
  3. Is parenthood itself an obstacle to a good marriage?
  4. Are particular types of couples–e.g., couples with children, secular couples, less-committed couples–more likely to benefit from regular date nights?

For answers to these questions, see the full report.
