About a year ago my husband and I decided to enact a weekly date night. Shockingly, we have hardly missed a night in 52 weeks. We met a couple who were not from our church at the jacuzzi one night during a church marriage retreat who suggested that there 32 year long relationship was thriving as a result of date night.
I had been mulling the concept over with my hubby for quite sometime at that point- speaking with them solidified our decision.
Now we do a date night babysitting swap with my cousin and her husband who live in our town. I so look forward to Wednesday nights because we have each other’s undivided attention and we act like we did before we had kidlets. We usually have just dinner, that way we can talk. We are in our fourteenth year as a couple and we’re still chuggin’ along! It’s really a gift to our kids as well, because it makes us a happier couple.
