‘Date night is a luxury.’
No, It’s an essential.
With the arrival of children, parenting can take over your personal life. Parents sometimes struggle to put aside time for their love life - the constant fear of being bad parents! Too many couples are caught working long hours and constantly being ‘connected’ to work via email/phone 24-7.
A break from “responsible life”.
Date night is about connecting with each other, not about getting things done. Forget the dirty laundry, cleaning the entire house every evening and cooking for the week. Date night offers a needed break from the demands of everyday life to focus on your other half. Listen. Express love, give affection and feel closer than ever.
While it’s important to have family meetings and difficult conversations, date night is not the time for that. Date night is for the two of you and only that.
Date Night is just around the corner.
Quality Time, keeping that spark alive!
Finding quality time together is key to making a marriage work. That becomes especially important when couples become parents. When you’re a parent, the luxury of “couple time” tends to disappear in the delivery room. It can become hard to remember what it felt like to be “the two of you.” The transition between being two and becoming three is very hard to handle at first. Why? Because there is less time for everything. Less sleep, less communication, less money, less privacy.
Getting enough couple time builds intimacy, opens communications and strengthens your bond. That means booking a babysitter, while you and your spouse go out. Plus, it provides your kids with a good example for their own future relationships.
Having fun as adults.
Can we really be satisfied with what happens to our conversations over the years, a sharing of information about children and stewardship, full of annoyances? To re-establish priority is first of all to signify to our partner that we wish to find with him a quality of exchange, a privileged dialogue.
We live in a busy world where communication is surrounding us but not between us. Everyone is busy between work, family and social commitments and there's hardly enough time to squeeze dinners every week, let alone carve out a significant chunk of time to spend with your significant other or even holidays but let’s keep in mind that a couple is not only the sum of two individuals.
It is also an entity unlike any other, sacred and well worth investing time and care into.
