Thumbs up List fun things to do with your wife/husband that won't cost a dime.

I'm looking for fun things to do with your wife/husband that don't cost a time. Weather it be at home or going out and doing something. Of course the cost of gas when going out will happen. I'm looking forward to your suggestions from the 10+ Club.

go for a late evening walk round a local park together ,
Stay in bed all day together,
Have a candle lit bath together,
give each other a massarge,
cuddle up and watch a film together,
Listen and dance to your fav music,
have fun making a list of what you like in bed and then swap !!
have fun

Pack a picnic and go to the park. Act a bit like kids again, and swing on the swings, feed the birds any leftover sandwich crusts.
( okay, you have to pay for the food, but you need to eat anyway?)


Go for a long walk at sunset - make sure you hold hands

Recreate High School prom night in your own home...get all dressed up, put on some slow music and waltz the evening away - sort of sappy, but sweet

Make your wife breakfast in bed...make enough for you both and have a lazy morning in bed.

Check out your local community center or library for a fun, free classs or activity that you might both enjoy - new, common interests are good.

My wife and I are poor. What's been fun for us:
1. Walks together, with or without the dog.
2. Cooking together.
3. Investigating new ideas separately, then discussing our conclusions together. We've been coming up with a lot of things to research and discuss in this political/economic climate...
4. We tried writing together, but that didn't work. I have written for her many times and that is fun for me and her.
5. An idea we were going to try, right before she left me: Vibrating underwear for her. Not free, but if you use them frequently enough, the per-use charge is very small. *grin* I hope I get a chance to test this out...
6. Hidden object games for the PC. Sure, they're not free, unless you look in the "right" places.
7. Watching free shows on Hulu.com. We don't have a TV, but we like John Stewart.
8. Shopping together and making it an adventure not a chore.

Huh. I should put more thought into this...

Good topic. Thanks.

We:

Play backgammon
Play gin rummy
Board games (Not Monopoly or Risk, we are both too brutal about winning)
Practice ball room dancing
Play, “what would we do if we won the lottery?”
Dream and plan home projects
Cuddle on the couch with a good movie
Gardening and landscaping
Enjoy a fire, music and conversation on a snowy evening.
Go to our kids sporting, academic or dramatic events together

These are such wonderful ideas. Most of you all sound like you all really enjoy and have a lot of fun with your mates obviously thats why you married them, but it's nice to see that people really do get along and what I marriage could and should be. I really enjoyed reading this thread
