  1. These are brilliant ideas! Me and my husband have been trying to come up with ideas for date night and I think some of these may definitely come in to play!

  2. Couldn’t agree more. Getting married is just the start of the rest of your life together. Never take one another for granted. Marriage is a two sided relationship. Always respect one another and remember why you fell in love in the first place. As years go by you face challenges together and may disagree or have different perspectives. Work things out together. Give and take. Remember to tell one another how much you love one another. Dating is fun and a great way of making sure you take time out for one another. We love the winter months snuggling up by the fire under a blanket together watching our favourite tv programmes, but we remember to change routine now and then to avoid getting stale. X

    This list doesn’t work for married couples with a bunch of kids. The babysitter comes. We have a date night. What to do? I’m tired of going to restaurant for fate night. Going to movies is stupid. We are tired after work. Yes, sometimes we go food shopping. Seems stupid to pay babysitter only to go food shopping. Sometimes we go sit at Starbucks. But there is nothing else to do. Sure, occasionally we could go to theater. Or visit friends. But if we have a date night every week, what do we do? It turns out the best thing to do is see a marriage counselor. $10-$15 copay for an hour time of talking about stuff with a counselor who moderated and stuff. I recommend that. Only good things can come out of it

    For people with children and can’t get away, have a “camping trip” in the house. Put the kids to bed & set up a tent in any room. It doesn’t have to be a big tent or room. If you don’t have a tent, use sheets.(we actually did this outside once) Use air mattresses or several layers of blankets & pillows. (the softer, the better)Play outdoors sounds from youtube. Light the tent with flashlights & have a light picnic, with wine or any beverage & play strip poker. If you don’t have cards, get out the kids crayons & make your own.
