8 Creative Date Nights for You and Your Honey

8 Creative Date Nights for You and Your Honey

There is one thing that I was adamant about when Nate and I got married: We must continue to date. Kind of sounds like a strange thing to say when you get hitched, but this week it will be nine years and two kids later, so I am guessing it worked.

However, after years of marriage and kids, I think date nights can get a little mundane. The key is to plan at least one to two nights out per month. Just don’t expect your partner to read your mind. My husband is not a planner, I am. I have to remind him it is his turn to pick. I try (while not always successfully) to not get frustrated by this. A gentle nudge will do. And who knows, after all is said and done your partner might get more addicted to date night than you are.
