Yes You’re Busy And That’s Why You Need Date Night
A very wise man once told me that even Jesus took time to get away from the crowds to pray and rest. While the spiritual connotation to this was taking time out to talk to God and read his word, he was also trying to tell me that everyone needs a break. The hustle and bustle of life can really strain a relationship if the people involved do not make time for each other.
This means sharing each other’s company and having a set date night each week. It becomes exponentially important when you’re talking about kids involved in the picture. If you have kids, you know how hard it is to get privacy, let alone privacy with your spouse.
You need a break from the kids, a time to eat something without worrying about what the kids want and what you have time to make. It’s a time to catch up with your partner and talk about what’s going on, enjoy each other’s company and just relax.
You can do anything you want on date night. You can go to dinner and a movie, or you can even switch date night up to the afternoon to do something else you want to do for the day. If you have a good babysitter lined up, then you can even take a larger portion of the day every so often so that you have more time.
Switch things up from week to week and have a fun time planning date night and keeping it fresh. Both you and your partner can look forward to the day, and it will help make everything else that comes your way much easier to deal with. Of course you love spending time with the children and rushing around doing everything, but you have to allow yourself to take a break.
It’s just like when you need a day off work. When your body needs a break, it needs a break. It’s just like when you need some alone time. All of these things are important to experience every so often. And, your relationship with your partner needs that refreshment each week.
It will keep your relationship strong, and it will help keep the romance alive. Open communication is very important in a relationship, but how are you going to focus on that if you don’t have time?
