With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, Carson and Producer Angie are in the midst of planning romantic surprises for their significant others.

Both Carson and Angie have been with their partners for nearly a decade or more, so when it comes to the secrets behind a happy relationship, they have some definite experience.

However, a new study of 1,000 married Americans is shedding some new light on the topic, outlining a specific recipe for everlasting love.

So without any further ado, here’s what you need to know:

  • Saying ‘I love You’ ten times a week
  • Kissing 10 times a week
  • 7 cuddles a week
  • Sex three times a week
  • 10 deep and meaningful conversations a month
  • 3 Dinner or a date nights a month
  • 2 drinks together a month
  • 3 arguments a month
  • 3 surprise romantic gestures a month
  • 2 nights out on their own with friends each month
  • Cuddle up in front of the TV together six times a month
  • 2 vacations together each year
  • 2 mini-vacations each year
  • 3 shared hobbies and interests

Carson and Producer Angie compared their own relationships against this list. How did they fare? Take a listen:

“Number one,” Carson said. “Saying ‘I love you’ ten times a week.”

“Easily I do that,” Producer Angie replied. “Easily.”

“I’m probably once a day,” Carson admitted. “But, you know, we’re busy! But I write ‘xoxo’ a lot in texts to Siri and I mean I love you when I write that! But I’m not in front of her because we’re both busy.”

Next up…seven cuddles a week.

“I’m not a cuddler, no,” Angie revealed. “I don’t like to be cuddled up on! I need my space.”

“We cuddle pretty good I think,” Carson boasted.

Now here’s a doozy. The study reports having sex three times a week will keep the flame going.

“Probably not three times a week, no,” said Angie.

“No one’s having sex three times a week!” Carson argued.

“Oh, I think a lot of people probably are,” Producer Angie responded, but conceded, “There’s a big difference once you have kids.”

Now here’s the kicker. Happy couples reportedly indulge in two drinks together per month.

“A month?!” Producer Angie exclaimed. “Not a day?!”

“Neither of us are having sex at all, but I’m drinking ten cocktails a night with my partner!” Carson laughed.
