Setting aside time and keeping romance alive is vital for any couple, particularly those who may also be parents of young children, empty nesters, or couples in their twilight years.
Jay and Laura Laffoon, creators of the Ultimate Date Night marriage seminar, have written a book with 52 date ideas, including:
- The Spring Cleaning Date: Every marriage can benefit from an occasional “spring cleaning” with finances, communication, and boundaries. Plan a day to spring clean your home together and share what is going on in your lives.
- The Hobby Date: Take an interest in some of your partner’s hobbies and enjoy them together. You’ll be surprised what you learn about each other and what sparks your partner’s interests.
- The Double Date: Dinner and conversation with close friends or a mature couple whom you respect allows you to connect with others who can walk beside you through hard times and encourage your relationship.
- The Family-Focused Date: Plan a fun family activity that keeps communication lines open (in a gentle way) with your kids and have fun as a family.
