If someone were to ask me “What’s the key to a good marriage?” I’d only have to think about it for a few seconds before I would answer “A hot tub.”

And I’m being absolutely serious. This is the truth that I have told people on many occasions.
Now I don’t claim to be an expert on marriage. There are lots of couples who have been married longer than me. But I’ve been in a good marriage for almost two decades- and I have to give credit to the fact that we bought our first hot tub just a few months after the wedding. We’ve had a hot tub in our backyard ever since, and my husband and I have soaked in the hot water almost nightly for the past 18 years.
Many, if not all, of our most important conversations, have started or continued in that intimate and relaxing space. While other couples may spend their evening on the couch binge-watching a show or scrolling through their phones, our nightly ritual almost always involves a good long soak in the hot tub. If they say that communication is the key to a good relationship- I say that owning your own personal hot tub is the crucible of communication.
When the day is finally done… kids are in bed…and you get a few minutes to yourself, there is no better way to spend it reconnecting with your spouse in the hot tub. Sitting there in the dark… cradled by warm water… massaged by bubbles… relaxation is inevitable. With no outside distractions, conversations flow. Hopes, dreams, plans, gossip, catching up and to-do lists all find their turns during the ebb and flow of communication.
