Hello, my darlings. Today, I wanted to share with you why I think that spending alone time with your partner is crucial for your marriage.
We all know that spending quality time with your kids is crucial, but what about your partner? I believe that spending alone time with your spouse is also important.
Not long after my husband and I got married, we welcomed our first child. And soon after that, we were building a new house. So that means that we didn’t have a chance to spend time together. It took as quite some time to realize that we should set aside time just for us. Even for just 1 hour, it would be time to reconnect, talk, and remember why we fall in love with each other in the first place. Because after having kids, it’s easy to get lost in the parent role and neglect your partner, because kids need you more, but your spouse needs you also, he also wants some of your attention and love.
Ever since our daughter turned 18 months, we have a rule that we have to have a date night at least once a month, where we would go to the movie or the nice restaurant and enjoy each other company for 2-3 hours. And this decision has been a game-changer. It allowed us to concentrate on each other, and we could talk about everything that’s been happening. And I believe that communication is incredibly important. We continued doing so after our son was born, and we love that. Sometimes it can be a little tricky to organize babysitting because our families don’t live close to us, and every time we want to have a date night, we have planned it a least a few days ahead. But it’s all worth it.
And now, because of the pandemic situation, we haven’t had a date night in a while. But we improvise it. We put kids to bed, watch Netflix together, and drink wine. It has become our nightly routine, and it works for us.
Tell me in the comments below, how do you spend your time with your spouse? Do you think that having date nights is important? Tell me in the comments below.
Until next time, my darlings, please stay safe, I love you, and I will talk to you soon.
