With his constant touring and recording schedule on top of his duties as a family man,  Jay DeMarcus of Rascal Flatts is constantly glued to his iPhone checking e-mails, tweets and text messages.  His wife, Allison, is just as busy with her TV hosting work and raising their two kids, Madeline and Dylan. In order to really get away and spend quality time with each other, Jay and Allison have adopted a no cell phone policy on date nights.  The policy started after the couple got in an argument at a nice restaurant.

Jay says, “One time a couple of years ago because both of us were sitting at a dinner table at a very nice restaurant looking down at our phones texting.  And I just happened to mention it and she didn’t take to it too kindly and so we had this huge fight.  So after, our resolution was that we would go to a restaurant on date nights and put the phones away.”

This policy has worked so well for Jay and Allison that he adds, “You know, restaurants should adopt a policy to where you have to turn your phone off when you go in, just like airplanes.”
