CLEARFIELD -- Lindsey Rietzsch believes that dating your spouse will help keep the marriage alive. She says that, "if bonding and connecting can be fun and enjoyable, then couples would spend more time exploring ways to mend the rough spots in their relationship." Rietzsch points out the fact that couples all dated before they were married to convince each other that he or she was "the one," and couples need to continue that throughout a marriage.
Rietzsch says there are more than 50 ideas in her recently published book that could be used for dates, and they are for both husbands and wives. She says, "The couples that apply these methods will surely lower their chances of divorce."
Rietzsch lives with her husband, Mauel, in Clearfield. They have one son, Abe. She graduated with a degree in communication, family studies and social work from Weber State University.
