21 Date Ideas We Think You’ll Love

We fight when we don’t spend quality time together.

I mean at each other’s throats, easily irritated, and constantly nitpicking each other for days on end. We thrive when we are together, in a place where we can connect and be intimate. It took us years to learn this about our marriage and now that we know, we protect our date nights with everything we have.

We’ve said it once, we’ve said it twice, and we’ll say it again: make date nights a priority!

Spending time together keeps things fresh and fun in your relationship. Having a time with no distractions where you can connect is too important to ignore.
