Friday night means different things to different people. For some, it’s the end of the work week, or for others it might mean high school football in the fall, or it might mean pizza night. But one thing’s for certain in the White household; Friday night is date night.
Yes, even though my wife and I have been married for over 3 years now, we still make it a habit to spend some quality time together each week. It is usually nothing major. Sometimes we just grab a burger and milkshake, other times it’s watching a movie, or even going for a stroll in the park. But we enjoy the time together to talk about current events in our lives, plan for the weekend, and discuss upcoming things in our lives.
In my mind one of the best investments you can make in your marriage is to have a regular date night, no matter if you have been married for 2 months or 40 years. It doesn’t have to be once a week; rather you could have a date every other week or at least once a month. But spend time together, reconnect with your spouse and put a place in your budget for date night. Remember you don’t have to spend a lot of money to have fun, but help your marriage stay on track by having a date night.
Do you regularly have a date with your spouse? If so, how often and how has it helped your marriage?
