You know how you always see older couples together at restaurants together?
They are all dressed up and they cannot keep their hands off of each one another?
This is because they go out on date night regularly, the key to a happy marriage is that no matter how long you have been together, you never once during the relationship ever stop dating your partner.
It is important to make sure that you never stop trying to make the other person happy and women love to dress up with you and be shown off whether they are twenty or eighty, women never truly change and men, you should love showing off your beautiful wife whether they are twenty or eighty, because she is yours and you should be proud and honored to call her that every single day.
Going on a date night gives you a chance weekly to get away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the world, the two of you can go into a restaurant curl up in the back booth, sit back and relax and just enjoy a glass of wine or a few drinks while you eat a nice dinner and talk about your day, your week and just have a good time, share a few laughs, hold hands, stare into each other’s eyes and just enjoy everything about your relationship, there is nothing better.
Sometimes when you are with the same person for a long period of time, people can get annoyed, exhausted and tired of the same drama, the same things day in and day out. Adding excitement to your relationship is a great way to keep the marriage strong. There are plenty of great date ideas that put the typical cliché options to shame.
Even if you just decide to go on a hike in the woods together or go to a area where you can play laser tag, whatever it is that the two of you would find enjoyable to do together is what you need to do. It does not always have to be the stereotypical dinner and a movie, every single week the two of you could do something fun and exciting to really take you away from things that are happening in your life even if it is just for a few hours and let you enjoy each other’s company.
An important part of marriage is that you are with your best friend, if you feel like this is someone that you would consider your best friend, then going out and doing things together should be like second nature to you and you will find that even going out for ice cream with this person is the best time of your life and you will feel like you are a young kid again even if the two of you have been together for years.
Make plans to go out and do things with your partner at least once a week, no kids, no stress, no fighting, just having a good time with one another, there is nothing better in this world than being able to just take time to sit back and share a good laugh with your spouse to re-light the flame of your marriage!
