The Mike & Carla Morning Show

Weekdays 5:00am - 10:00am

For those that have been in a long marriage or even those people who are thinking about taking the big leap of love, we come to find out that the secret to a successful relationship is the “2-2-2” rule! If you’re a fan of Reddit, they’ve been talking about this rule for quite awhile, but it all came out in an article in The New York Post as to the guidelines of the “2-2-2” rule and what each “2” meant.

The Mike & Carla Morning Show ran down all the info for you, so here it is…

  1. Here’s what the first “2” means: You should plan a date night every two weeks. No matter how long you’ve been together, you want to keep that electricity alive in your relationship, then make sure you have a “date night” every two weeks. That means just the two of you…not you two and a group of friends!
  2. The second “2” means: Plan a getaway weekend every two months! That’s right! It doesn’t have to be extravagant, just a simple weekend getaway near or far…romantic or even just a “fun” weekend getaway. Again, doesn’t have to be “spending”, but just make sure it’s your weekend to just get out of the house and away from everything!
  3. The third “2” means: Make sure you plan at least 2 full weeks away every two years! Even if you have to tell the kids, “…it’s just mommy and daddy this time!” And make sure it’s somewhere you both can relax and just have fun!

See how easy that is? Even if you have to copy this and keep it in your wallet or a safe place, you do all three of these things and chances are you and your marriage will be able to survive anything! Oh, and living in Las Vegas…the first two “2’s” shouldn’t be that hard to plan and stay on schedule. Think of all the places to plan a “staycation”!

Of course, being that close to SoCal, Cabo, or even a quick flight up to the Great Northwest, the third “2” shouldn’t be that hard to plan as well. So hope you enjoy and take advantage of this great advice…all this and a lot more in this morning’s edition of “A Few Things We Think You Should Know”!
