3 Reasons Why Date Night is SO Important for Married Couples !

Today I want to talk about why Date Night is SO important for Married Couples !! This past weekend, My Husband & I went out to celebrate his 28 years of life .. YAY !! Another Birthday, Another Blessing!! That’s what’s inspiring this post. We had SO much FUN!! It was just a fun and very relaxing weekend overall. It was a very much needed and break from the daily demands of being a parent or even an adult for that matter. During my work hours today, I found myself smiling and thinking about how much of a good time we really had and in that moment I was also reminded of how important date night really is, especially for married couples.

It is so easy to get caught up in the duties of everyday life. If you’re a parent then you know how busy the daily tasks of parenting are.  If you work crazy hours everyday, then you understand. If you’re a student that’s gone back to college, then it’s possible to get entirely too busy with that too! It’s not always intentional but often times married couples tend to forget to make time for each other. They get so busy with life that eventually their marriage or relationship seems to no longer be a top priority and that alone could result in boredom and that’s the last thing you want to be dealing with. So, in my opinion, Date Night is absolutely essential for a healthy marriage and down below are 3 important reasons why I feel that way!

EXCITEMENT

It’s important to spice things up and have new adventures. Sometimes it’s scary doing things outside of your comfort zone but it’s also super exciting and a little dare devilish when you can do it with someone you’re actually comfortable with! Keeping the excitement alive also gives you an opportunity to bond and create so many new memories!! It also helps you build trust with one another and support as well as you find new differences 🙂 The excitement aspect of date night keeps you young and fun in spirit no matter how old you are or how long you’ve been together!!

COMMUNICATION

Keeping an open line of communication is essential to a healthy marriage or any relationship at all. I feel like date night encourages positive communication. It’s the perfect time to remind your spouse of how much you love and care about them. A few nice, loving, and kind words go a long way in marriage. It really does more for your partner than you will ever actually know. Plus, the more you sit there and chat, the more likely you are to remember why you fell in love in the first place. That’s not the only type of communication that needs to happen on date night though. It’s perfectly okay and healthy to talk and catch up on how things are going in your life whether it’s at school, work, parenting or whatever but I would definitely avoid talking about anything that’s going to stress your partner out and ruin the night. Don’t do that.

SEX

This is that part of marriage that a lot of people don’t like to talk about but I’m gonna say this – Sex is not the most important part of a marriage or relationship but it does play a pretty big role!! It’s such a beautiful level of intimacy especially when you’re sharing it with your soulmate. However, when you fail to satisfy your partners sexual needs, then you also open the door for boredom and unfaithfulness. That’s an awful thing for me to say but that’s just the type of world and generation we live and it’s the truth! Again, life gets busy and that’s understandable but you do need to make sure you’re keeping the sex drive alive! Date Night is a G R E A T time to this type of fun happen!! I’m just saying lol. If you don’t have time any other time then you be sure to make time for it on date night! 

 

I’m sure there are many reasons as to why “Date Night” is important but these are my top three. I was just sitting here earlier thinking about how good of time my husband and I had this past weekend and it made think of other people who are in relationships, especially marriages and are having issues due to boredom. It’s sad and I’m just thankful that boredom isn’t a problem for us but I did want to share what I hope can be some helpful tips to anyone who’s looking for them! 🙂 My husband and I don’t get to have Date Night very often due to the fact that we don’t have a very good support system when it comes to babysitters so we’ve learned how to make time for each through the week and that’s always fun but it’s nothing compared to actually getting out of the house and being active together!! I love literally every second of it. I hope you enjoyed this post today! I know it’s a little off topic from what I’ve been posting over the past month or two but I warned you in my “Welcome” .. I will talk about some of any and everything !! 🙂 I’m aiming to encourage personal growth in every aspect that I possibly can!!
