I’m over on the Dayton Mom’s Blog today posting about my take on date night.
Yes, “dating” my spouse is of utmost importance. It comes before my children, my “me-time” and even my husbands career. But I quit this cultural norm that we need to be going out of the house once a week in order to have a relationship with my spouse.
“But, I for one, quit date night. I quit the cultural expectation that I need to go out and eat dinner and do an activity with my husband. I quit the expectation that my marriage will be in shambles if I don’t fit it into the box of date night. I quit the idea that if I don’t’ come up with creative ways to have a free date night, I’m failing in the marriage category. I quit the idea that my children are nothing but burdens and that my husband and I are incapable of having a relationship when they are in the vicinity.”
