Date Night With the Hubby
Regardless of how long you have been married, you should make an effort to have a regular date night with one another. This keeps your relationship strong and healthy. Neglecting to spend time alone together builds a gap between the two of you. While dates do not have to always be extravagant, they should always include two things: you and him. Curl up on the couch with a movie or paint the town red. Whatever you do, make sure that the two of you are committed to that time together and not pulled in several different directions.
Stay-at-Home Movie Night
Coming up with date ideas may seems like a difficult task on a weekly or monthly basis. However, the great thing about being married means that you do not always have to go out to have a good time. If you have kids, send them with a sitter for the evening and enjoy a quiet house to yourself. Make a nice dinner then get a movie that the two of you can enjoy. The key to a successful movie night is finding something that he will enjoy too. If you’ve been dying to see the latest romantic comedy but you know he’ll hate it, then wait to see it with your girlfriends.
Getting Out on the Town
Sometimes life gets in the way of married couples getting out on the town together. If it has been several weeks since the two of you have went on a date outside of the home, then you need to plan an outing. You can whip out your curling iron and he can whip out his shaving brushes. Put on something dressy and start painting the town red with your love. Depending on your mutual interests, you may want to visit a local gallery, dinner and a movie, or even a romantic candlelight on the riverboat.
A Night to Remember
You also need dates for special occasions. During these situations, you should look for opportunities to reenact important moments during your relationship. Where was your first date? Your first kiss? Find important moments and relive them. It’s sure to make it a night to remember as you reminisce how far the two of you have come as a couple.
Frequent dates with each other will make you stronger. It doesn’t always have to be the biggest or most expensive. You simply need time together. Get away from the office, the kids, the in-laws. Get away from reality for a bit and enjoy the euphoria of the love the two of you feel for one another.
