8 Fun Date Ideas for Married Couples

Let’s all be honest. Once we get married we can easily fall into a vicious, mundane routine. Especially when you add children to the mix, it can be even more difficult to get quality alone time with each other.

It becomes school, work, extracurricular activities, home, dinner and then bedtime. Repeat. The constant day-to-day routine can cause any loving couple to lose that spark of magic that brought them together in the beginning. Other than having Simply Maid Sydney come in and do all your cleaning for you to change up your routine; here are 8 fun, dare we say affordable, date ideas to get you two back in sync.

  1. Go to a concert or comedy show. You can go listen to a new upcoming band or watch your favorite comedian tell his funniest jokes. The main thing is that you two are enjoying yourselves as a couple and enjoying entertainment (outside of your TV screens)!
  1. Do a scavenger hunt. Leave fun little clues around the house that lead up to a date planned by you. How fun is a little mystery?
  1. Go to a Farmers’ Market or Street Fair. Who doesn’t love selecting fresh produce or eating your favorite sweet treat. Go walk around your local Farmers’ Market or Street Fair.
  1. Have brunch. One Sunday afternoon, go to your favorite part of town and go have brunch. Select your favorite dish, enjoy cocktails and depending on the weather, enjoy the weather outside.
  1. Start a “bucket list”. Now this date idea can be so exciting. The two of you can sit down and create a “bucket list” of activities for the two of you to do together. Your list can be as short or as long as you two want. Also, there does not have to be a time limit on how long it takes to fulfill each adventure so you can have months worth of dates planned.
  1. Take a mini road trip. Jump behind the wheel, with a picnic lunch in tow and hit the road. You don’t have to select a far destination. It can be an hour away. You can turn up the tunes or take the time to catch each other up on your busy week. Pick the most lush park along the way and stop to enjoy your packed lunch.
  1. A spa day. How amazing does a couples, full body Swedish massage sound? The two of you can sneak off in the middle of the work day and get massages laying side by side, in the privacy of your own private room.
  1. Get some ice cream. Pick a neighborhood that you have not frequented, get some ice cream and do some exploring. Walk around a tourist part of town or the bustling downtown scene. You two can talk and window shop. The together time over the sweet treat is a great way to capture your younger selves.

All relationships have their ups and downs, even the strongest ones. Whether the two of you are going through an up or down phase, it is important to make the time for you and your partner to reconnect. As the examples above show you, it doesn’t have to be an extravagant, expensive event. What matters is that the two of you are getting the quality time necessary to strength your relationship.
