Before we had children, the hubby and I went on dates. It was nice even several years after getting married to date. It keeps a marriage strong and alive. Since we will hit our 13th year of marriage in a few months and four children later, things have changed just a little bit.
We still love to go out, but it rarely happens nowadays. With our youngest only being 5 weeks old, it will be a while before we get away again. So instead of sweating it, we have stay at home date night instead. They usually save a lot of money, and can honestly be just as fun!
