Late Night Date Night

Every couple can benefit from the romance of dating again.  However, you may not always be able to leave the house for date night.  Here are a few of the fun ways we nurture our marriages when securing a sitter and spending cash is not on the agenda.

Tuck the kids in bed and enjoy a little alone time……

  1. Snuggle up in bed with ice cream sundaes (avoid being busted by your kids for having food in your bedroom by getting those dishes in the sink before sunrise).
  2. Head out to the deck with a glass of wine in one hand and your hubby’s hand in the other.  Laugh, talk, or just enjoy being together in the quiet.
  3. Grab some chips and salsa and challenge your guy in a game of Scrabble. We don’t recommend keeping score in your marriage, but when it comes to board games, the gloves are off.
  4. Crack open a couple of beers and grab a throw blanket.  Curl up together on the couch and ask each other a few fun questions you may or may not think you know the answers to.  Here is a link to a list of questions we think is great.
  5. If you are like us, you rarely visit the movie theater.  However, this makes selecting a movie through your cable company easy since you haven’t seen anything anyway.  Pop some popcorn and enjoy, and try not to fall asleep.
  6. At dinner time, feed the kids PB&J, a few carrot sticks and apple slices.  When the lights are out, order from your favorite Thai restaurant and enjoy dining together without cutting up food or cleaning up a milk spill.
  7. Just being alone together can bring you closer as a couple.  Tackling a small household project like folding laundry or filing bills together can actually be fun.
  8. You could let your husband plan date night, and you know what that will include – men are pretty easy to please.

  1. I love these ideas! My fiance and I aren’t married yet, and we don’t have children, but I find these ideas still very helpful. Sometimes it helps just to sit down and relax together! Thank you!!! :)

  2. Those date nights are so important. One day …soon…the kids will be grown and gone and you will look at this man in bed with you and say,”…. And you are,who?”. Date nights help you remember why you love him and who he is. This I know after 37 years of marriage. Blessings to you.
