How often should we have a date night?

Every night would be your wife’s response. Your response would probably be not that often. Her suggestion would be more along the lines of what it takes to have a successful marriage. You should at least try to date once a week. That doesn’t mean always spending money and sometimes it’s not even leaving the house, but it is quality time together doing something that the both of you enjoy. We know that children sometimes keep us from dating as often as we should but you have to make arrangements to date even during child rearing. Find trusting sitters that can watch the children while you work on your marriage because one day the children will leave and all you have is each other.
