About the Date Night Challenge™

Did you know that going on a date just once a month can significantly strengthen your marriage? In the stress and busyness of life, it’s important that we take time on a regular basis to laugh, dream and reminisce together. By taking the Date Night Challenge, you are making a commitment to regular dating. We’ll give you everything you need to make this simple and easy: 3 dates in 3 weeks (to form a habit) and then one date a month. You will enjoy how something so simple can have such a big impact on your marriage.

Our challenge to you is to go on 3 dates in the next 3 weeks, and then 1 date a month after that for the rest of the year (or 30 years!). When you go on your dates, you will learn 1 new trait of the 12 Traits of the Thriving Marriage. You will get to practice each new trait with fun activity ideas,  questions and conversation starters.
