My husband is absolutely my most favorite person in the entire world. Though we are married and no longer “dating,” I believe it is essential to date my husband often. Now obviously, we live together and see each other every night of the week. But there is something different about setting aside time to get all gussied up and head out for the evening.
Now my husband and I have only been married for a year and a half, and there are no children in the picture just yet. But we both live full lives. We still need to make it a point of placing a date on the calendar that belongs just to us. It is our way of letting the other know that we are the priority in each other’s lives. So date night (or day) is a necessity to us.
Date night is a fundamental element to any relationship (married or not). As I said before, setting aside that time for one another will show the other person they are loved and cherished.
You have placed a date on the calendar, have your fancy pants on, and you’re ready to hit the road for whatever fun adventure awaits. What do you do next??
