Dating life when you’re engaged/married

Andrea, on May 21, 2024 at 5:47 PM Posted in Married Life 0 2
I feel like a lot of us lose some of the spark because we don’t focus on dating after we’ve gotten engaged or married. Everything shifts to planning the wedding or just ordinary life together. What are some ideas for keeping the dating spark alive after the ring??

    We schedule a date night every week. Sometimes this is just dinner, other times it's going out to the theater or botanical garden, and some nights we just stay in watching a movie or playing board games together. It sounds simple, but as busy working adults, planning and scheduling is super important. Then we have the rest of the week for our own hobbies or to be with family.

    My husband and I are intentional about planning multiple date nights per month, and occasional vacations for just us. We still plan some trips with friends, but we also make sure to have some trips where we travel just him and me. Date nights for us are anything from going out to dinner, or going for a hike, or going wine tasting, or staying in and playing board games or watching movies, etc. Even household chores become an opportunity to spend time together: cooking a meal, gardening, yard work, folding laundry, etc. We also have our favorite TV shows that we watch together. I completely agree with Jasmine that being intentional about making the time for each other is key to keeping the spark alive.
