This may come as a surprise, but divorce lawyers don’t like to see couples split up any more than anyone else. We have a steady stream of clients even in the best of times, which goes to show just how difficult it is to maintain a healthy marriage. After decades of working with unhappy couples, we’ve learned a few things about what seems to work and what doesn’t when someone is trying to keep their marriage healthy and happy.
Is it time for you to revitalize your marriage? This map of Nutley, Montclair, and the surrounding areas is a great place to start when you’re planning a date night, seeking support, or ready to try out a new look.
Make Time for Date Night
One of the best ways for a couple to bond is by doing something they haven’t done before. Experiencing a new activity or catching a show or concert brings that sense of newness and spontaneity back to the relationship. You don’t need to be in the honeymoon phase to see things from a new perspective.

Enjoy the Great Outdoors
Getting some fresh air and moving your body has been proven to increase endorphins, and it may even increase your self esteem. Try to get out with your partner and experience your local parks and gardens, weather permitting. This isn’t about being a professional athlete! Just feel the breeze and enjoy the local sights.
