How often do you plan date nights with your spouse? This year marks my 15th wedding anniversary and we have date night a few times a month.
If you have a modest income and small kids, you may be thinking, “We can’t afford a date night“. If you’re married, you can’t afford not to have a date night.
Date nights don’t have to be elaborate or expensive. In fact, my husband and I used to have car dates when our kids were little and we couldn’t afford a babysitter. We’d put them down for bed, head out to car and sit there talking, arguing or making out. Yes…we argued sometimes, but with time we matured and worked through many of the issues young couples face.
It’s a chance to connect as husband and wife. When we’re on our date, we don’t talk about work, or family. We use that time to mainly focus on the moment and our plans for the future.
Talking about our short and long term life goals energizes us. It gives our marriage a refresher. It reminds us that there is more to our life together than just the daily moments.
One of the best things a couple can do for their marriage is talk about their vision for the future. When my husband and I sit across the table from each other, sharing a meal, there’s just something special that ignites within us.
