🔻 Answer Yes or No to These Questions 🔻
In the 1.0 version of our marriage, we had become more like business partners or roommates.
We did many right things like regular date nights, knowing and speaking each other’s love languages, and even going away just the two of us on occasion, but underneath it all our hearts were miles apart.
This eventually led to a creeping separateness in our relationship, infidelity on Mark’s part, one very dark year, and a four-month separation. 💔
As we began to put the broken pieces of our relationship back together, we began to have different kinds of conversations.
We dug deeper, listened better, and learned more about fine-tuning the inside rather than symptom-treating the outside of our relationship.
We also became life-long learners, committed to pursuing continuing education for our marriage.
We became Mark & Jill version 2.0.
We are so grateful for Mark and Jill’s insights, creativity, and wisdom.
Their teaching has been a game-changer for our marriage.

And feeling the joy that comes from the laughter spreading through the house
And the feeling of connection and pleasure that comes along with it
And knowing that you'll be heard and your marriage will grow stronger, even after the hard conversations you've been avoiding
Too often we say “I do” and then expect things to just work. What we forget is that there is a learning curve in marriage…and it doesn’t matter if you’ve been married 5 or 55 years.
I can say No More Perfect Date Night has been one of the most helpful tools we’ve ever used.
We can both relate to what both Jill & Mark share on many levels.
It’s well thought out and it helps us improve areas of struggles we’ve had.
I also love that we get perspective from both spouses, shared transparency and the encouragement and hope that God can change a marriage if you’re willing to work at it.

I really like the variety of short videos, interviews with experts, live webinars, and creative date night ideas.
I do Date Night alone—my husband isn’t willing to do it with me—but I learn so much even by myself.
Thankfully, he does do the creative date night’s with me. He likes those!

A membership site is a website that is only available to members. It is accessible by a username and password and gives you access to premium content. The No More Perfect Date Night membership site will become your go-to place for marriage coaching, content, and creative ideas, allowing you to connect both with marriage experts and a like-minded community.
In addition to the weekly marriage coaching content and discussion forum, members will have access to a Bonus Area of the website where they can find a variety of marriage resources at their fingertips. Additionally, members will:
• Receive discounts on any future No More Perfect Marriages resources.
• Receive a discount on any No More Perfect Marriage Seminars sponsored by Mark and Jill Savage (Note: we’re unable to offer discounts on No More Perfect Marriage seminars sponsored by churches and organizations).
• Have access to in-person members-only coffee chats with the Savages if/when they’re in your area and time allows. Members will be notified within the site and by email when Mark and Jill Savage are traveling and in an area of the country and available for members-only coffee chats.
• Be entered in exclusive members-only giveaways.
The No More Perfect Date Night Community can be used by both couples and individuals. If your spouse is willing to participate, we highly suggest you watch the videos together, discuss how the teaching applies to your marriage, do the date nights, and participate in the quarterly webinar together. It’s a great way to move your marriage to a deeper level. If your spouse travels frequently for work, you can even watch the videos separately and then set a date and time to process the content and apply it to your marriage.
Yes! The discussion questions after the Double Date with Mark and Jill videos and the Dive Deep Interviews accommodate both couples and individuals (instead of using the “Talk About It” questions, you’ll use the “Think About It” questions). A healthy marriage requires us to “be” the right person. Our encouragement is for you to use the No More Perfect Date Night site as a place where you pursue being a better “me” so you and your spouse can be a better “we” together, even without their full participation. When one person in a relationship changes, the marriage changes!
Remember, you choose when and how you interact with the content. In general, our goal is to keep the time short, but the content thought provoking and practical. Here is the general timeframe for each element:
• Week 1: Double Date with Mark and Jill: One 10-20 minute video and 10-15 minutes of discussion following the video. Approximate time: 30 minutes.
• Week 2: Dive Deep Interview: 30-40 minute video interview with a marriage expert and approximately 10 minutes of discussion. Approximate time: 45 minutes.
• Week 3: Design A Date: This creative date night would probably be a 1-2 hour date. Some can be done at home and others are outside the home.
• Week 4: Dynamic Dialogue: This LIVE Q&A Members-only webinar will last approximately 45 minutes. Feel free to interact with Mark and Jill (and occasional guests) the whole time or whatever part of the webinar you can catch. You’re also welcome to catch the recorded webinar session anytime you want. Approximate time: 45 minutes.
While we expect most members will use the video format, the video content (mp4) will also be available in an audio format (mp3) and a written transcript format. This allows for easy access in a variety of modes and it accommodates different learning styles.
The monthly charge will happen every 30 days from when you register. It will state either No More Perfect Date Night or JAM Savage Ministries on your credit card statement.
You may cancel your membership at any time by emailing email@example.com. Please allow 72 hours for processing. Upon cancellation, you will no longer be able to access No More Perfect Date Night. If you choose the annual membership option and cancel, you will have access to the membership site until the end of your year.
We want you to share them! The best place to make those suggestions is in the comments below any post or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. An initial response will likely be addressed both within the comments and at the quarterly LIVE webinar (the webinars are always recorded if you miss them LIVE!). If the topic is more complex or one that lends itself to a little more time, we may choose to do one of the Double Date with Mark and Jill videos on the topic, as well.
They are always at 8pm CST on either Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday evenings once a quarter. We alternate days of the week in order to give members who have regularly scheduled events on certain nights of the week the ability to attend on occasion. Even if you’re not able to attend and interact LIVE, the webinars are recorded for you to view at anytime. We announce the dates several weeks in advance so you can get it on your calendar.
I love the real and vulnerable along with the teaching and equipping.
It helps a lot!
