Be creative

They seem to forget that they still need romance and add spice to their relationship to strengthen their relationship as years go by. Dating your spouse should not be a forgotten event in your relationship. Creative dating is one way to bond with each other.

Dating your spouse needs creative thinking. Of course as a couple you have to consider your budget especially if you have kids to support but it doesn’t mean you cannot have decent dates together. There are inexpensive dates that you two can enjoy. What is important is that you find something that you can do together and enjoy at the same time. Here are some inexpensive dates you can do with your spouse:

Enjoy the beauty of nature. Enjoying the nature is a gift that the two of you can enjoy.

Loving free - great suggestions on dating your spouse. After 30 years of marriage, well, believe me, it DOES take creativity! We've found just reading together with some ambient music in the background is getting a lot of play lately, but we do plan outings as well.

One idea for a date with your spouse is to think back to the things you enjoyed doing when you first met. Maybe some of them aren't possible now, but if you can work out what you enjoyed about it you can put that into a new activity. The simple ones like going for walks give you quality time with one another, away from the strains and stresses of everyday life.

Since moving to Greece at the start of 2008 my husband and I now spend 99% of our time together. Ths was going to be make or break for the relationship, and fortunately it turned out to be make.

Spending so much time together it's also important to stay creative rather than drifting into too much routine. Simple things like hugs also keep you close.
