Date Your SpouseIt is important whether you have kids or not to spend time alone with your spouse. The health of a marriage relies a great deal on quality time with your mate. Even if it is just one day a week set a date night.
Leaving kids especially young kids can be stressful so take the time to find a baby sitter you feel comfortable leaving you child or children with. A trusted relative or friend might be best as worry and stress can quickly ruin your date time.
For those of you with kids date night gives you a chance to spend much needed time paying attention to each other and talking about adult matters. The kids come first but your relationship is meant to last beyond the kids and to make that happen you need to stay close.
For those without kids date night can be a time to break the average routine of work and home. A time to do something a little special for your partner.
For those dealing with lots of time apart time spent together is very important and should be treated with a great deal of respect. Spend time on the phone by setting call times. Send regular e-mails & maybe invest in a webcam.
