Relationship Thursday: The 3X3 Rule


Do you follow the 3X3 rule in your relationship? This one is from marriage counselors. What is the secret to all great relationships? The ability to compromise, communicate, don't resent. It's all easier said than done. In the spirit of compromise, marriage counselors say to practice the 3X3 Rule. Couples that practice this confirm that it's done wonders for the relationship.

The 3X3 Rule consists of 3 no questions asked alone time hours per week and 3 must be together hours of time per week. You both must agree on this to make it work. For example, if you're husband wants to take a 3 hour nap every Sunday afternoon while you watch the kids, that's his 3 hours. If he wants to play basketball with friends for 2 hours on Thursday night, he can do that, along with a ONE hour nap on Sunday. The time can be broken up or take together. You can have a 3 hour Wednesday night wine night while he watches the kids. And then, you can go spend 3 hours taking Instagram snaps at the Bridges of Madison County on a Sunday afternoon together.

Give it a try, if you're having some troubles!
