Date Nites

An email series brimming with inspiration, tips and practical tools for your first years.

Dear Newlyweds,

We’re so glad you’re here and are looking forward to journeying with you over the coming year.  One of the most important things you can do for your marriage in its first years is to establish a habit of regular couple time. SmartLoving Newlywed is designed to help you do this.

The content is drawn from SmartLoving’s acclaimed relationship courses which are used by tens of thousands of couples. They explore timeless themes and are packed with practical strategies.

We want to help you establish simple, lifestyle habits that will nourish your intimacy and protect your relationship from decay. We hope you will join us on this journey.


in Faith and in Love,

Francine and Byron Pirola

Set the foundations for your marriage

Deepen your intimacy in faith and in love

Learn frameworks and practical relationship tools

Date Nite

Once a month, you will get an email in your inbox exploring the topic and detailing an activity for you to do as a couple. This includes some individual reflection questions, instructions for sharing together and something to do during the week.

Schedule a regular date nite where you can explore the topic together over dinner or a glass of wine.

Pen & Paper

We recommend that you purchase two quality journals for you to record your reflections and insights in preparation for your sharing time together.

Think what a gift this will be to each other in the years to come when you are looking back on this time together and can see your growth recorded in your journal!

You’re in Control

You can choose your start date or discontinue at any time.

If you are not yet married, we suggest that you choose a start date after your honeymoon when you can give your Newlywed Date Nites your full attention.

If you’re already married, you can start today with your first Date Nite.

"We knew from our pre-marriage preparation that we needed to make our marriage our mission.  SmartLoving Newlywed is a reminder to set apart time for each other, to make sure we are prioritising our vocation."

Newlywed Subscribers

"The rubber really hits the road when you return from your honeymoon and the daily demands of living with another person start to mount. It’s in these early months that you form critical bonds and ways of relating that set you up for your future together.

The Newlywed email program has been a hugely insightful exercise so far. We love to sit down over a drink to chat, catch up, and learn more about each other. The Date Nite emails provide a topic to read about, and a simple, but impactful, set of questions to discuss."
