Relationship experts believe that date nights are extremely important for couples. It doesn't matter whether they have been together for 2, months, 2 years or 2 decades. Getting out and doing something spontaneous is healthy.


How often should you get out on a date?

According to the Institute of Studies, they recommend couples go on a date at least once a month.
