Married couples need to spend one-on-one time together to be healthy. But they also need a community of couples who positively influence their relationship.
Your marriage is not an island. You need to interact with other couples – to invest in their lives and for them to invest in yours. This is especially important because so many people live far away from members of their extended family and can’t benefit from their influence. If you don’t have family support, the influence of good friends is invaluable.
