Abstract

How can Parks and Recreation professionals lower the divorce rate by having more married couples play more? In today’s society many married couples are not spending much time together. Adults employed full time report working an average of 47 hours per week, which equates to nearly six days a week. Outside of work, the couples are raising kids and dealing with extra-curricular activities such as youth sports and after school clubs. When does a couple have time to play and have fun as they did before they got married? Research and interviews with various couples ranging from newly engaged to elderly couples celebrating 40-year anniversary’s, we will discover the reasons for healthy and unhealthy marriages and how recreational professionals can help.
