Couples that have been together for quite a while seem to start taking each other for granted. To avoid this dilemma, take time each day to do something for your partner that you know they like. Whether it be a back rub, foot massage, a smooch, or a cup of hot cocoa. You spend a lot of time trying to please others, especially at work and other relationships. Make time to nurture your relationship with your spouse on a daily basis.
We have been married now for 38 years, and to keep it fun and exciting, we try really hard to go on a Friday night date. We love going to the mall about thirty miles away, having a treat, perhaps taking in a movie and window shopping. On Sundays, we love taking a walk together to remember what a beautiful place we live in, and to ground ourselves in preparation for the coming week.
Each relationship needs the following:
- Mutual respect
- Fair fights
- Support for one another
Date nights are a great time for your relationship to grow. Without them, the relationship can unravel as each person tries to fill their emotional needs.
I am sure you can think of other ideas for date nights with a friend, acquaintance, prospective partner, spouse or significant other. Please share some of the things that keep you close to yours.
