Let’s talk about your dating game as a married couple. Your “recreational intimacy” is the way the two of you spend your time together. Maybe this is an area of your marriage where you can really see an opportunity for growth.

That’s because as a married couple, dates may have a routine to them. It could be that you always do dinner and a movie, or just wander and window shop while looking at your phones.

But remember when you were dating? There was a lot more variety in what you did together. There also might have been a lot more adventure too!

But then you got married, and after a few years, you’ve begun to realize it’s always dinner and a movie each and every time you go out. 

There is nothing wrong with having your old standbys. Those places where you know the food is good, and the customer service is great, are wonderful to have. You know you’re going to like what you get and it’s going to be awesome. 

But are you just going through the motions instead of really being present with one another?

It’s date night. We’re going to go to the same restaurant. We’ll have the same conversation. We’ll go home and have the same sex. You know the routine.

But what if you could change it up?

Sometimes it’s a simple matter to step out and explore something creative BEFORE the date even happens. Dates don’t have to be expensive. There are many low cost date ideas you can enjoy together. 

When you plan your date beforehand is empowering and a lot less stressful than sitting in the driveway figuring it out once the sitter arrives. 

You can get back to a place of creativity in your marriage. You’ve done it before, and you can do it again.
