A lot of married couples don’t realize that the key to happiness is to keep your marriage fresh. To do this you need to break out of routine as a couple. It can become monotonous to wake up, go to your job, come home, eat dinner, and do the same things over and over again with your partner.
The happiest couples who make their marriages last find different ways to keep their love fresh, funny and playful.

Whether it be a spontaneous date night to a rock climbing gym, to pulling pranks on your significant other, or perhaps just a change in scenery.
