The 2014 Winter Olympics are scheduled to begin this Friday, February 7th . On this day, millions around the world will be viewing this historic event.

The events include biathlon mixed relay, women's ski jumping, mixed-team figure skating, mixed-team luge, half-pipe skiing, ski and snowboard slopestyle, and snowboard parallel slalom.

There are many people who will want to watch as much of this as they can. However, if these individuals are married, they must make sure that this time doesn't interfere with their time with their spouse.

Spending quality time with the spouse is critical. The more time one spends with their spouse, the better their marriage will be.

When deciding which events to watch, include the spouse. One idea would be to eat dinner together while watching the Olympics. Or perhaps watch an event together after dinner. Over the weekend, spend the day watching some events, curled up on the couch together.

Here in Gainesville, the Olympics can be viewed on the NBC channels 9 and 110-1. Opening Ceremony begins at 11:00 am ET.

It doesn't matter where or when one watches the Olympics, as long as, they are watching them with their spouse. Remember, time spent together with one's spouse is always a good investment.
