Keeping a relationship healthy is like walking a tightrope: it requires balance, years of practice, and is frequently performed in front of a large, carnival-attending crowd. Actually, scratch that last part.

Schedules can be hectic, and if you’re raising kids, you barely have enough time to sleep, let alone give your relationship plenty of extra love. But a new study from the University of Virginia has found that designating a slot of time each week for 'date night' can work wonders for keeping a relationship healthy.

Now, this might just seem like common knowledge. Date nights simulate a simpler time, back when you had a funny hairdo, a leather jacket, a mint condition Chevy El Camino, and no little ones running around. But the numbers back up the concept; couples who dedicated at least one time each week just to each other were 3.5 times more likely to report being 'very happy.' Need some inspiration? Check out these date night ideas that are way better than a Netflix binge.

The One Exercise Actress Alison Brie Stopped Doing To Prep For GLOW

But there's one form of fitness she's dropped. And that’s cardio. Known mostly for her quirky, uptight roles on Community, Mad Men and How to Be Single, latest role as Ruth Wilder on GLOW has her hitting the gym hard. Her pre-filming workout routine was nothing short of impressive. To prep for becoming one of the '80s-set Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (or, GLOW) Brie stopped her regularly cardio-filled routine (think SoulCycle) for a more intense regime to build strength without bulking her up. And after watching the show - she did all of her stunts herself - it's safe to say the change paid off. Brie's trainer Jason Walsh (the man behind other celeb physiques like Emily Blunt and Minka Kelly) created a program that would allow Brie's character to handle the body slams, flips and flying off the ropes (literally). 'We did tons of sled push-and-pulls; we did a lot of deadlifting,' Walsh explained to the Hollywood Reporter, adding, 'She could crank out 10 body weight pull-ups on her own. It's insane.' photo credit: instagram He says he added hundreds of pounds to Brie's push-and-pulls, not to mention making her piggyback him. Before you go upping your weights, know that he had her start with using her own body weight.

The benefits expand beyond just happiness. The predicted probability of divorce dropped by 11 percent for husbands, and seven percent for wives when the couple allowed time for date night.  Couples were also 3.5 more likely to report above average sexual satisfaction (unlike young people), higher levels of communication, and 2.5 times stronger feelings of 'commitment' to the relationship.

The report was published as a part of the The National Marriage Project and surveyed over 1,600 married couples aged 18-55.

The numbers do also say that American couples are having less sex, so maybe go see a movie with your manacle sometime?
