Did you know?:
• 24 million children are growing up in homes without their biological fathers.
• Only 30% of divorces are due to infidelity, addiction or abuse, 70% of divorces are due to couples feeling disconnected.
• Couples who manage to devote time specifically to one another at least once a week are markedly more likely to enjoy high-quality relationships and lower divorce rates, compared to couples who do not devote as much couple time to one another.
• Fathers provide unique benefits to their daughters through their active and positive presence from the time of birth all the way through adulthood.FTF created the following video to help promoting husbands and wives dating through their marriage:
I've always heard how important it is to date your spouse. I remember a sermon I heard once where the pastor and his wife went out on a date every Friday night and thought how great that was! As much as I would like to go out on a date each week, life gets busy and honestly it just doesn't happen. We're lucky if we go once a month, but we do find time to spend quality time together on a regular basis...and it always feels good to reconnect. I think it's important for parents to spend time on their relationship for, not only their own well-being, but the well-being of the whole family.
