The Art of Marriage Ops And Applebee's GC Giveaway

Since 2001, military divorces have increased by 42 percent.  Studies have shown that the divorce rate increases with each new deployment.

The Art of Marriage Ops campaign was designed to raise awareness about the challenges that military families face when family members return home.

Want to help military families strengthen their marriage?

FamilyLife is doing just that by sending couples to attend an event showcasing The Art of Marriage, a video series that will help couples cultivate a happy and strong relationship.

You can help spread the word by sharing this app on facebook or twitter using the hashtag #marriageops.  

Help bring awareness to this issue and reach more families by also texting the word OPS to 80888 and donate $10. That's less than the cost of two cups of coffee!

Not only military couples need some help with their relationships.  Here are five inspirational date ideas that will help bring you closer to your partner.

And what could be better than a GC to bring on that date?


One lucky reader will receive a $20 Applebee's GC!

Just use the Rafflecopter form below.  You must be a US resident 18 or older to enter.  If you do not do the two mandatory entries, your entry will not count.

Disclosure:  I did not receive any compensation for this post.  The gift card is being provided by the sponsor.

Yesterday my hubby and I decided to go by a place we hadn't ate at since we were dating. We are coming up on our 5th year anniversary and I love him so much! It was a great reminder!

Into the Wild is definitely my favorite date idea. I've never been camping before (besides the "pitch a tent outside your house when you're a kid" camping), so this would be a fun new experience and what better way to bond than outside the pressures of daily life?
