Just because we are married, doesn’t mean that we couldn’t use a good “Date Night” once and awhile. Okay, there is the babysitter issue. If you can get one on a Saturday night, that is a big score. Even if your regular babysitter is booked up on a Saturday night, you can have a date night any night of the week. Even if you and your husband are exhausted and just want to sit on the couch, don’t do it. Designate one night a week, or every two weeks, and get out of the house together. Even if it is a coffee at Starbucks or grabbing a bunch of books and sitting together at Barnes & Noble, this is time for just the two of you.
I have a couple of friends that have date night and they couldn’t be happier about it. One couple takes a foriegn language class together, followed by dinner. Another couple attends a lecture on parenting and goes for dessert. The ideas are plenty, the results are better than good.
