Date Night!!

Joe and I try to have Date Night every Saturday night.
 We mostly just go to dinner..sometimes a movie...but now that he is working nights (Saturday and Sunday included) and he has to go in to work at 8pm, so we just go to dinner. 

Finding time in our busy lives to do something special with our significant other is really important.  It doesn't matter where you go..or what you long as you are together and spend that one on one time...its very important to do this!  Once we have children we tend to not make this a priority!

Before marriage, most couples spend enormous amounts of time together.  However, after marriage, the time spent together tends to decrease, often significantly.  It is reported that only 25% of married couples have regular date nights!

Not spending time with your spouse happens for many reasons including the kids, work schedules or just everyday life. As responsibilities start to increase, the time spent with your spouse decreases.
The best way to get some time with your honey is to make that time a priority, and an appointment!!
You would not miss a doctor's appointment, so do not miss a spouse time appointment.  Schedule at least one chunk of time each week to spend with your spouse, and just your spouse. It is good to get family time in, but you can't forget that in addition to being a parent, and an employee, you are also a husband or wife. Make sure that role does not become secondary to the other roles you play!! 

Also remember that you don't have to spend money to spend time together!  Have a Date Night IN!!
Make something special for dinner and get a Red Box movie!  You are together and that is what is important!!!

Never loose sight of what's important because even though we love our children more then anything, we have to first have a great relationship with our hubby to be a great parent to our kids!

Enjoy your time with your hubby!!


  1. All so true - we have been trying to work on this lately in our house but still have a long way to go!!

  2. You have a first class blog...
    Had a few hours to blog hop glad that I stopped here....Be sure and stop by and read about a miracle in our family....

  3. My hubby and I have this problem. We are so focused on so many other things that we forget to set aside just time for us. I think it's so important!!

  4. It is important! And remember you don't have to take hours out of the day to spend time together...even 1/2 hr is better then none!!

  5. my husband is a home body. he is also a picky eater so it's rare we go out to eat. he,does alot of projects in his domain,the garage. music is usually being heard. it's great as we dance sway to the music,but i just wish that the garage were larger or do i, it,s a nice place to cuddle.
