Ahhh Date night — It’s a wonderful thing between two people or sometimes more. It’s a time where you can just hang out, have a few drinks, eat and relax. It’s especially wonderful when you can talk to your spouse without any interruptions from the kids and just talk about ANYTHING on date night.
THAT is our dilemma.
But isn’t that the main reason couples go on date night anyway? To be alone as husband and wife. To listen to each other as a lover and friend? To remind one another that we’re still man and woman before being mom and dad?
I believe it’s very important to have a date night. The sad part is I couldn’t tell you the last time I went out on a date with my husband.
I would love to go on a date with my dear husband but it hasn’t happened in a very long time. It’s not that we don’t get along with each other because we do. We’ve been together since 1990 (almost 23 years) and married for about 17 years. Despite the length of time we’ve been together, I think we have a very good relationship. I really don’t know what it is. I’ve asked him numerous times to take me on a “real” date and it still hasn’t happened.
I don’t know what to say and I don’t want to sound like a broken record. I understand with work he can be extremely busy but you know what, marriage also requires hard work and dedication. In order to have a healthy AND happy marriage, you must make sure you work on it as well.
Do you believe in date night? If so, how often do you go? Do you have to beg?
Maybe you can help me by suggesting a way where we can start at home and venture out into the city? Share your tips!
Please, help me save date night!
