Date Nights are Important
Was date night pushed to the back seat? Then it’s time to go out. Date nights are important too, esp. in marriage.
When was the last time you and your partner went out on a date? Did parenthood take too much of your time that you and your partner cannot afford to go on dates?
Date nights are important, especially during marriage! So men, bring your wives out on a date!
More often than not, couples who get married and have children tend to push date nights at the back of the closet. The little darlings can really be a handful and having little ones that asked for too much attention can push back all plans to the point of cancellations.
Going out on dates is good for you and your marriage. It helps rekindle love and can wake stale marriages, and not only that, it can also help relieve stress.
Going on dates can give you Time off from the daily routine.
Taking time off from the daily routine also gives you a time for relaxation.
Our daily routine can put a strain in the way we view things. Being a dad, who works day and night to ensure that his family always have food on the table, clothing and shelter, can be very tiring, stressful and undoubtedly full of pressure. With all these, dads would like to go home, put their feet up, watch their favourite sports channel, have dinner with the family and recharge for tomorrow – doing the same tiring, stressful and pressuring routine. Imagine doing this over and over and over again. Same old routine. Usual practice. Nothing new. Nothing Exciting.
Mothers and homemakers experience the habitual cleaning, cooking, laundry and taking care of the little ones. There is no logging out, no 30-minute breaks. The only time off is when all is off to bed and snooze off.
These repetitive and demanding schedule puts a strain not only to oneself but to the marriage as well. With stress, pressure, exhausted body and drained emotions, one can be walking like a zombie and put out stress-related anger towards your family.
Go out on dates! It doesn’t have to be everyday. Going out at least once a week can be helpful. A day or even an hour or two break off from the monotonous activity can make a huge change. It helps relieve stress and pressure. A new environment and a change in routine can bring a smile on someone’s heart. Going out on dates can give you and your spouse the time to relax and just enjoy being with each other again, without thinking the hassles of daily life.
