Marriage Gratitude 8: Date Nights

by | Everyday


Date night!  Or day dates. Breakfast dates.  Anytime dates.

I am so grateful for those moments where we are able to slip away, alone, and laugh, talk, connect, relax and enjoy a special meal and simply BE together.  To laugh, talk, relax, reconnect or enjoy a special meal.

These may not come often enough for you.  We hear lots of reasons people do not get to take time and connect with dates, but the truth is sometimes you have to fit in time for special moments for each other. Not intentionally making time for your marriage is a slippery slope.  Even if it’s at home, free, after the kids have gone to bed.  Fit those moments in and BE together.

To make dates work for the fire life, sometimes we have to think outside of the box in terms of things we do together.

Grocery runs don’t count for some couples, where for others it does.  Cooking dinner together.  Putting together a puzzle.  Paintball. Fishing. Breakfast at a little café before work.  Binging your favorite tv show after the kids are in bed.  This list could go on and on.  Pick something you both enjoy, fit in the time to do it as often as you can and live it up!
