Thumbs up Husband * Wife Date Night

Does anyone do these ?

I do ... I try and get out at once a month with mine and we do something special ... either breakfast out or dinner out and soo it is a good time too.

We talk about all sorts of things too. Other times we get away for weekends { 3 days weekends } which means we pack up ah suitcase 4 a weekend away which means we leave on Friday an return on Sunday.

We pack just what is needed for the weekend ...

~ Change of clothes { be sure to know what the weather is }
~ Bibles so that we can read & share
~ Notebook w/ pen to write notes
~ Camera ... that is if we are planning on doing site seeing
~ Strawberries & Sparkling Cider / Grape Juice / 2 glasses

So, what we do is get away in the SPRING TIME as that is when our anniversary is and we find some place close that we both like & then in the FALL we usually go someplace special where we can see the FALL COLORS and so ... we have been doing this for 10 years and it has been wonderful to get away from all the noise, computers, kids ... phones.

And, we can just enjoy each other's company !!! So, if you do have fun funds to get away try this ...

* first thing ... find a sitter for the kids { if any }

CANDLES
GLASSES & SPARKLING APPLER JUICE ( non - alcholic )
POPCORN & MOVIE

then lock yourselves in the bedroom with the MOVIE & POPCORN and CANDLES and just have a good time and it does not cost a lot of money to have a great night out with your loved ones !!!

I need to make date nights a priority again in my marriage and I am interested in your ideas. Other than the standard dinner and a movie....what do you and your spouses do for dating fun?

My wife and I always have a date night even if it is just to walk the beach or go to the mall, eating out, a movie together alone (at the theater), a play etc. It doesn't matter what it is as long as there is "us" time. Hard to do with four little ones otherwise.

Serious question: Don't you get bored with each other? There's only so much time you can spend with someone before you go mad. I guess alcohol helps?

its so important for a relationship to have its time away from the norm of a relationship. i.e work and home responsibilities .from the children atleast once a month. lunch, hotel , night away.
also having atleast one night out a month with mates.

Thursday is our date night...between my son in driver's ed and my daughter's b-ball, it turned into not having a free night but we didn't want to give up on our date night so we work around their schedules, even if it means picking one of them up and bringing them home during the date

It's my husband's birthday today so I planned a night in the city last weekend (kids were with my ex) We went to a nice restaurant, saw Blueman Group & had a great, short get-away.

I'm glad you were able to sneak away...congrats on next weekend, too. You and hubby have big hearts to take in your brother's children to raise as your own. May God Bless your family.

What a great topic. My wife and I were in a time in our marriage that we just did not have any fun together when I heard an interview with an author on the radio. She wrote the book "How to Date Your Spouse" in which she has many ideas for dates so couples can get the spice back in their marriage. I decided to buy it and I think it actually saved my marriage. I feel strongly about dating my wife. I dated her while I fell in love with her and now by dating her again it brings back those feelings . I would highly recommend her book: LINK

Hubby and I have a date pretty much every week. We go to lunch together, then go grocery shopping and run any errands we have. It's not much, but it's something we both look forward to. It's OUR day together. Summer when the kiddo is home gets a little less date time, but we still try to steal away sometimes.

In April his work is paying for us to go to Atlantic City for a weekend!!! That will be a great date for us!
