Are you dating your spouse?


Many couples have a date night every week. This is a special night every week that the couple goes out and does something together.

Date nights for many couples are nights marked on the calendar that are kept no matter what.   These are important. They allow the couple to have time together to talk and spend time alone.

Another form of this are date weekends.  Couples should get away at least 3 – 4 times a year. This may be a staycation. Somebody takes the kids and you just stay at your own place alone for the weekend.

It could be a night or two at a local hotel or resort. This can also be a weekend get away out of town.  My wife and I recently did one of these and we had a great weekend.

If you have young children sometimes a date night or date weekend can be hard to fit in. The date moment is the perfect solution. I think every couple with young kids or older with no kids at home should work date moments in to their daily routines. Date moments can be 60 seconds to 30 minutes of spending time together.  Date moments help to keep relationships alive and healthy. Here are a few ideas.

Creative Date Moments

  • A passionate kiss when you get home
  • Slow Dance in the kitchen to your wife’s favorite song
  • A quick prayer together
  • Deck or Patio time after the kids go to bed
  • A text or call during the day to see how the day is going and let them know you miss them
  • Fire Pit time
  • A bubble bath
  • Drinking a glass of wine or your favorite beverage together
  • Stopping and getting coffee on your way to an event or the store
  • The time before your kids games or events in the car/truck to talk or listen to music
  • Talk after the kids go to bed without the TV on
  • Take a walk around the block
  • Feed the kids and then eat dinner alone together
  • Write a note or card to your spouse
  • Intimate time after the kids are in bed

These are just a few ideas. I would be interested to hear about your date moment ideas. Please share this on your Facebook or Twitter.

Be Great!
