The key to lasting romance might be easier than you think.

One Reddit user ckernan2 thinks, who has been married for over a year, thinks he has found the secret to keeping the spark alive and it's living by a rule of twos.

The 2/2/2 rule means going out on a date every two weeks, enjoying a weekend away every two months and taking a holiday for a week every two years.

"We’ve stuck to it, and it really has made things awesome," he wrote. "We got married in August and people still ask how long our honeymoon phase will last. I think it’ll last as long as we stick to our 2’s."

Could you do it?
