Plan a Date Night with Your Spouse

Date Nights
Every couple needs to plan date nights.  It helps to get time away from the cares of life and just enjoy being with each other.  It will allow time to discuss the children or other issues you just seem to never find time for.  Make sure you treat the date night as a date.  It doesn't have to be expensive or extravagant, but make it special.

Something To Eat
Taking your spouse out to dinner will allow your spouse time to focus on the two of you instead of worrying about preparing a meal and cleanup afterwards. There are some great places to eat in Andover MA where you can share appetizers and joke how your spouses’s dish almost looks tastier than your own. A coffee or dessert lets you linger a little longer if the conversation is flowing well.

Other Places To Go
If you manage to get the whole evening together, having an active second part of the date can allow for more fun as you work off your dinner. A game of mini-golf or walking through a county fair provides ample opportunities for jokes and pointing out nearby attractions while you chat in a low-pressure environment.

Quiet Places To Relax and Chat
If all is going well at the end of the night, finding a quiet place to sit could help the night end on a high note. Many lakes and city overviews have benches where the two of you can sit in a romantic scene and chat. Watch a sunset. Success on your first date night will make a second date night even better.  Put time into your marriage and make it important.  Too often we get busy with life and place our relationship on cruise control assuming everything is fine and will continue that way.
As you plan your date night, ensure that you do not get too wrapped up in having every moment planned out. Having a solid overview of the night keeps you stable without necessarily requiring a rigid schedule. As you and your spouse converse, enjoy the night together and play it by ear if you must.  Make changes if you need to.  Tweak it until you find a plan that works for both of you.

Have fun and enjoy your date night!  See you soon, where neighbors share!
