What are the 5 Best Date Movies for Fixing My Marriage?
Watching a movie may not seem like an effective way to improve your relationship, but it is.
If you’re lacking inspiration, motivation or hope right now, watching a film is not a bad way to get started with restoring playfulness and connection.
I know it sounds like I’m making this up, but researchers at University of Rochester are standing by me on this one.
They found that discussing 5 movies about relationships over a month helped newlyweds in the first 3 years of marriage cut the divorce rate by more than half, from 24% to 11%.
They even found it was more effective than therapist-led methods at keeping couples matrimonially minded. So this is better than counseling. Way better!
Plus it’s fun.
Therefore you have permission to plant yourself on the couch with snacks and the remote, even if you’re not a newlywed.
If anybody gives you grief about this, tell that person you’re doing it for the good of your relationship.
Tell ‘em I said to. The researchers at Rochester and I have your back.

Hi! I’m Laura.
I was the perfect wife–until I actually got married. When I tried to tell my husband how to be more romantic, more ambitious, and tidier, he avoided me. I dragged him to marriage counseling and nearly divorced him. I then started talking to women who had what I wanted in their marriages and that’s when I got my miracle. The man who wooed me returned.
I wrote a few books about what I learned and accidentally started a worldwide movement of women who practice The Six Intimacy Skills™ that lead to having amazing, vibrant relationships. The thing I’m most proud of is my playful, passionate relationship with my hilarious husband John–who has been dressing himself since before I was born.
