I absolutely love the date nights my husband and I share. We know spending quality time with one another benefits the whole family. In addition to our time alone, we also enjoy the company of other couples in our circle. There is something about being surrounded by other couples who are also in love.

My husband and I are truly blessed to be amongst other great marriages and relationships. So, when we are able to hang out with those couples it just feels right.  I enjoy the energy it brings and the impact it has on those observing. The laughs, the stories and good times shared are exactly what we need from time to time. Couples should spend time with other drama-free couples. There is a clear message it sends, love is alive and well.

Our marriages and relationships require continued support. What better way to support them than to create events geared toward couples. Celebrating our love is an absolute must. We need one another.

  1. Superwife

    These are good recommendations. Be sure to mix up the couples or make it two or three from time to time. Include married family (cousins etc) as well. But be wise – doing too many regular date-night things together with the same couple could create problems (over familiarity – cross-bonding). Happened to a friend of mine – her and her (ex) husband were super chummy with another married couple – spent way too much time with just them…(ex) husband and “friend” wife eventually had an affair.

One of the first ways that you can know that you are pleasing your spouse is to make sure you are listening to their needs and desires. Ensure that you know what they are really trying to communicate and not just what you think they mean. Sometimes this means not just listening in order to fix it, or to create a solution, but to be there to provide empathy and an emotional level of intimacy.
