When you and your spouse do want a night alone, you can turn to your friends for your babysitting needs.It’s a fact that couples who anticipate and participate in “exciting” date nights showed a significantly greater increase in marital satisfaction. Gentle pranks are always fun, but don’t get carried away. Place an unexpected phone call to your sweetheart just to say, “I love you,” or “I was just thinking about you.” Learn to say “I Love You” in different languages and say it when they least expect it.

If you haven’t been planning a little fun during your regular “daze” this could be a challenge and take a high degree of intention. Plan a weekly date together where the focus is to have fun and enjoy each other’s company. “It’s not that they mean to get boring, it’s just that they haven’t intentionally figured out what would be something fun to do.” Do yourself a favor.“But ruts are not terminal, and they can actually be quickly overcome.” Kiss hello before doing anything else when you get home.
