If you're anything like me you don't make "Date Nights" a priority like you should. In a perfect world Beka and I would go out every Monday night and catch a movie and dinner but more often times then not we think about it the day of and feel bad for asking a sitter on such short notice and we end up getting a Redbox movie and eating some pizza.. at home.
I was reading Christianity Today's Marriage blog and came across a post with Eight great ideas for date nights.
What do you do for fun with your "Date"? Where do you like to go and how often?
Here's a couple excerpts from the blog but go here to read the entire article.
Take in a local show or concert. Your town is probably teeming with gifted and creative performers at the local high school or college. So check to see what's playing. It's less expensive than the "professional" versions and often just as fun. At the end of the evening, share your favorite moments of the performance. Then "go back in time" to your own high school or college days and reminiscence together about your favorite school event or memory and why it was so special. Or see if you can guess some of the clubs or activities your spouse was involved in.
If you have children, ask them to plan your date! Earlier in the week, ask your kids (or friends, if you don't have children) to think of something fun for you and your spouse to do. They get to choose the restaurant and the activity. Then after your date, you and your spouse can give a "report" back telling about the funnest, funniest, or most special part of the evening.
