One of the things that has saved our marriage and kept it hot is having a regular date night. We do it every week unless I am out of town and if I am, I better be making it up most of the time. The pic is from our date weekend in Pittsburgh last weekend. Glen Beck Christmas Show (Tiff's Birthday present, she is a freak), then a 5-star restaurant on the hill, a trip downtown and to station square, and the rest of the details will have to end there.
A date night every week even with 3 kids? Yes...we started a baby-sitting co-op. If you want info on how to start one, e-mail my wife Tiffany: firstname.lastname@example.org
We go out 3 of 4 Friday's and 1 Friday I take mass amounts of legal narcotics and help her with 10 kids who invade our space. Our date nights last from 6:30-11:00 pm. Yeah babyyyy. I look forward to that time more than anything. I love hanging out with my bride.
Some date rules: We normally date alone, but love to partner up too. We RARELY run errands, and if we do, it better be a 10 minute deal. We guard these nights with our lives and make no qualms when doing my calendar. We do things we love to do and save and budget so we can do this every Friday. When the occasion comes up that money is short, we stay in for the one carry-out place in town and watch a movie.
Do you still date your spouse? What are some tips you have? Has this helped your marriage?
STOP MAKING FREAKIN' EXCUSES and go stir up some heat and passion, then come back and thank me. It just might save your marriage too.
