So we all know that the addition of kids in any marriage/relationship presents an entirely new situation. If plans, rules and boundaries are not put in place to ensure that your marriage stays healthy, vibrant and interesting, pretty soon as if by some law of gravity, it will fall to the exact opposite; becoming unhealthy, stale and boring. No one wants to be in a boring relationship when dating and you certainly do not want to be caught up in a boring marriage. So there are lots of things that you can do to keep the romance alive in your marriage and this is just one simple suggestion: DATE YOUR SPO– USE!
If we pause to think of how we fell in love with our spouse in the first place, the answer would most likely be because we love their personality, their ways, the way they do/say/handle certain things. All of which we found out while we were dating them! So let’s get back to “when we first met” and recreate the ride to love. As a couple, especially with kids, you should always schedule date night. Now, I won’t be the one to say it should be done every week or every two weeks or every month because we are all different and live different lives. You know what your schedule is like and do what works. But you have to make an effort to have a date night with your spouse at least once a month. And remember, you don’t have to go anywhere expensive or do anything super exciting. A night alone without the kids in the house can do just fine. You know what you like and what your spouse likes so plan accordingly but please DO plan!.
