Keeping fun in your Marriage – Date Night Ideas

Hello, I’m here to help you get some ideas together for date night this week. Today I want to cover the many ways that you can keep fun in your marriage by having a regular date night with your spouse. Now I know at first glance ‘regular’ date nights seem daunting or even expensive, but when you think about it fun doesn’t have to mean expensive.

Nowadays we seem to think that the more money we spend and the fancier it is, means better. Fun can come in many different shapes and forms and each one of those ways will be unique to your relationship as a couple.

We’ve all heard the old idiom about how variety is the spice of life. It’s certainly true, and this is especially true in marriage.

It’s not enough to have a good life, you also need to keep it exciting day after day, month after month, even year after year.

My husband and I are still very much in love with one another. We may be better people apart than together but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a lot of fun together.

We’ve been married for a long time, and I’m going to share a few of the ways we try to keep our marriage fresh

This way you don’t get stuck in a routine that makes your life dull and full of monotony

Now, I know what you’re thinking: “Take a walk. Get a babysitter.”

But what I’m talking about is more than just going for a walk or going on a date with your kids in tow. This is something that can turn into an adventure of its own outside of your normal routine

There are some great ways to get out and have some fun that won’t cost you a fortune!

Some examples of fun ideas to do for date night

Some examples of fun ideas to do for date night that can be inexpensive and easy to organise follow, enjoy!

  • Checking the local footpath maps on the local council website and going for a walk through your neighbourhood together.
  • Asking each other questions about one another every night.
  • Going to a restaurant where neither of you have been before, or even better to a restaurant that’s new in your local area.
  • Spending the day working together on a project outside, whether it be painting your fence or planting your garden
  • Having an evening picnic or barbecue with friends at the park or beach.
  • Watching movies you’ve never seen before, old TV shows, or documentaries instead of sitting through the same ones over and over again.
  • Go to a big public event in your area like a music festival or something similar.
  • Going on a road trip together. Pack the car, grab some snacks and hit the open road for an adventure of your own!
Taking dance lessons together is another great way to have fun.

  • Taking dance lessons together is another great way to have fun, especially if you’ve never tried dancing before.
  • Making your own perfume or creating some bath salts or body lotion together is a very fun experience that can be done for free.
  • Setting up an indoor scavenger hunt throughout the house for each other can be lots of fun. Especially when it’s just around the time of year Halloween would be.
  • Going to free events around your local area or in your town. For example going to the library and getting out lots of books so you can read them to each other.
  • Make a list of activities that don’t cost anything such as watching the sunset, making pigs in a blanket off of Pinterest recipes together. Give yourselves challenges such as trying something new or watching a sunset every week; the possibilities are endless!
  • Going to your favourite restaurant and get take-out instead of dining in. This way you get the best of both worlds, great food and time with one another without having to spend big bucks at an expensive restaurant.
  • Set up a weekly spa night. You can start this for free by making the spa at home. You’ll be surprised how much fun it can be to set up a relaxed environment. Allow yourselves time to relax and spend as you wish together.
  • Weekly dinner dates where each person gets to pick where they want to go and what they want to eat! This way neither of you gets stuck with the bill and you get to spend time together instead of spending so much time wracking your brains for where to go, what to do and how it’s going to cost you.
  • Sign up as a volunteer at your local area. It’s great fun and is really rewarding when working towards something worthwhile.

Feeling brave! do a DIY project together.

  • Planned surprises like organising a picnic in the park or packing up your backpacks and taking an adventure to the beach!
  • Date night at home, there are lots of fun ways to make this date unique; it can involve putting together dinner for each other, putting on PJ’s and watching movies all night whilst eating popcorn. Anything you relatively enjoy.

There are many fun, affordable ways to keep the spark alive in your marriage. From trying new things to revisiting old favourites, there’s something for everyone. Whether you’re looking for ideas to get out and have some fun together. Or want to stay in and have a relaxing night at home, these date night ideas will help you keep the romance alive.
