I never thought I would hear my husband say, “we have become that couple”. That couple that has become so busy that they hardly find time for each other, at least not after only five years of marriage.
I was taken aback by his comment but realized how true the statement had become. That was a wake up call for me to start prioritizing date nights. Think back to your dating years with your spouse. How you would excitedly make plans to hang out together and daydreamed, at least I did, of future date nights. Why then should things change after you say I do?
Whether you are married or newly dating, date nights are important to any relationship. It makes your significant other feel loved. It reaffirms to them that they are indeed important and you actually want to spend time with them.This is especially true if your spouse’s love language is quality time. Don’t know what your spouses love language is? I would encourage you to read the book The Five Love Languages.
Having regular date nights, keeps the sparks going in a relationship and gives you something to look forward to each week without the hustle and bustle of thinking about work or bills, but rather just focus on each other. Recall how much you looked forward to date nights when you were dating? Why stop the romance now?
When the weekend hits, we all get excited! Finally, a break from the chaos of the work week, plus date night… right? Alright, raise your hand if you love date night but hate planning date night? I’m with you. It’s hard to find the time to hunt down and plan date nights even when you do carve out time in your busy schedule to actually do the date night.
