Why Are Date Nights Important In a Relationship?

When day in and day out, you are all about work, kids and keeping up with the house and trying to score some downtime to yourself, its easy to let your relationship slide. It’s easy to lose connection and a bit of touch with each other. This could begin to slip away at the closeness over time. You also may find that your relationship has changed after a baby.

Even though it can be difficult to make the time, by doing your best to inculcate a date night into your weekly or monthly plans, it can give you and your partner downtime together to talk about things that need to be discussed, anything on your mind, or even just to catch up in a relaxed atmosphere.

  1. These are great ideas! I love how playful some of these are, like building a fort and watching movies! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Perfect, especially since having date nights away from the home means a sitter expense. My husband and I are planning to build a fire pit and do s’mores in the backyard!

  3. What excellent ideas! My husband and I try to make a monthly date time no matter what. Sometimes going out to lunch and othertimes snuggling up the couch and watching a movie together. It all varies on if we can get a few mins alone.
