Reinventing Date Night
This article explains how recent research shows that long-time couples benefit from novelty in their date night routines, meaning that couples should seek out different activities from the ones that we usually associate with date night, such as going out for dinner and a movie. When couples took part in different activities outside of their normal routine, like skiing or going to concerts or plays, they showed a huge increase in marital satisfaction. The researchers also said that you don’t necessarily to make a huge change to see a difference; it could be as easy as visiting a new place, or not making plans and seeing what happens.
A great reminder to all of us that in order to love deeper we must continually exercise our marriages.
