In 14 years of marriage I've learned that making date nights happen is hard, but making date nights a priority is even harder. Mainly because of one thing.
Do you know what that one thing is?
Even when finances are strained and we can't go out, we still have to make dating our spouse a priority. There will be seasons when we can go out and explore our town and spend hours together as a couple reconnecting. But until then, we can be intentional about the hours that we do have together.
Hours that can be spent together after the kids go to bed.
Instead of turning on the television and mindlessly watching TV together in silence, turn it off and break out a board game.
A fun game can reconnect you and your spouse. You can laugh and have fun again, enjoying the little things that you did together years ago. You can talk with one another and grow your relationship.
Date nights are that important.
When you haven't spent much time together alone in awhile, those moments can be awkward. Break the ice with a couple of board games to reconnect. You might find that this is your favorite way to spend nights after the kids are asleep. I've linked to the games with affiliate links to make it easier for you to find them.
