Do you know the feeling of putting your kids in the care of a babysitter for a few blissful hours to get away and spend some one-on-one time with your spouse? Okay. I know we look ridiculous in this picture, but this is seriously how Dave and I feel when we head out the door for a date night.
It’s kind of a mix between crazy and excited because we are free–from our four precious but highly energetic boys– to just be us for a few hours. Friends, if you don’t know this feeling, then you are missing out! You NEED a regular date night to keep your marriage going strong. Here’s 10 reasons why:
- When you go on a date, you and your spouse can give each other your best attention. With no kids around and a few hours together, you can do whatever you want to do! And, it doesn’t have to be expensive. In fact, my favorite kind of date nights are ones where we catch a quick dinner and go for a long walk at our favorite spot. Putting the kids to bed early and watching a movie while snuggling on the couch is great too! Whatever it is, do something that you both enjoy, and soak in this time together.
