Date Your Husband (20+ ideas!)

I’m often surprised by how many of my married friends admit they haven’t been on a date with their spouse since having kids. I know it’s a lot harder to get out of the house together once kids come along, but my husband and I really like spending time with each other. We also need that time together to rejuvenate our relationship. Still, even when we decide that we want to go out, sometimes it can be hard coming up with an idea. So here’s a list of some ways you can date your husband.

“Even though you’re married… you need to get away alone and continue to talk, laugh and have fun together. You need to learn more about each other, your past and your dreams for the future. You need to feel at ease with each other as you face new challenges together. That’s why dating shouldn’t stop with marriage.” ~ Dr. Gary and Barbara Rosberg, 40 Unforgettable Dates with Your Mate
