We love going on dates. We go through phases where we’re really good about making it happen regularly. But then there are phases where it’s realllllly hard to make a date happen. Schedules are crazy, budget is tight, kids get sick…you know how it goes.
Over the years, we’ve gotten really creative when it comes to date night and have learned so much when it comes to making the most of every date. We also can identify with many of the obstacles that keep couples from going on dates (babysitting and budget!).
So we decided to write a Date Night Guide for Married Couples. It’s not just a bunch of date night ideas, because you can find that anywhere! (Okay, we did include some ideas, but that’s just lagniappe.)
We really wanted to share our thoughts about what we do on every date, how to make date night happen despite all of the obstacles, and to encourage you to keep trying to make dates a priority.
If you’re still not sure if our date night guide is for you, ask yourself these questions…
Do you desperately want alone time with your spouse but having trouble figuring out how to make it happen?
Do you feel like whenever you do go on a date, you’re not connecting with each other the way you should?
Do you want to make the most of every date night, whether it happens once a week or once a year?
Do you wonder if it’s even worth the effort to go on dates?
If you answered yes to any of those, this guide is for you. Whether you’re struggling to go on dates or you’re actually pretty consistent with it, there’s something in this guide for everyone!
This 22-page Date Night Guide for Married Couples (in PDF form) will help you do several things:
- Identify obstacles to date night
- Get suggestions on how to overcome those obstacles
- Make the most of your date night, regardless of how often it happens (this is our favorite part of the guide!)
- Connect spiritually and emotionally
- Consider other factors, like each other’s personalities, when it comes to planning dates
- Brainstorm ways to connect when leaving the house isn’t feasible
- Include your faith into every date night
- Much more!
We are both passionate about the importance of going on dates and know that they have contributed to both the emotional and spiritual growth of our marriage. It is our prayer that this guide does the same for your marriage!
