After being married for 18 years, one thing my husband and I have learned, is that date night is definitely essential for a lasting relationship. Not only does it keep the bond tight, but it also keep the romance alive. Remember this if you don't remember anything else, dead romance is an even deader relationship! For us, we try to make it happen at least once a week. Although, sometimes it doesn't happen for whatever reason. But we quickly make up for the missed time.
I understand that work, school, kids and life can get in the way. But the two of you must remember that it's your responsibility to keep your mate interested. And that requires time and devoted attention, without distractions. Even if it can't be once a week. How about trying twice a month. You never know. You may find yourself falling in love all over again! It worked for my husband and I. And we are better because of it.
