  • Date nights help spouses reclaim both their individual identity and their identity as a couple as they escape from routine.
  • Date nights fan the flame of romance, passion and excitement.
  • They ensure fun times together to do the unusual.

Date nights show commitment to the marriage, and are one of the greatest investments a married couple can make at any stage of their married life together.

Date Ideas

  • Go for a walk in the cool of the evening – it doesn’t matter if there is no moon or stars visible you have each other.
  • One evening create your ‘power failure’ turn off all the lights and get out the safety candles or do everything in the dark!
  • Make home-made ice cream together then feed each other.
  • Just enjoy a lazy day together – chilling out.
  • Washing the car together can be fun. This one’s best done when the weather is not cold!
  • Do you have a local street or farmers market nearby, go together – you don’t have to buy anything, you can just talk about what meal you could prepare and enjoy from some of what is on sale.
