Congratulations! You’re hitched! You’re back from your honeymoon, and start living the daily dream of spending as much time as you want with your husband. Or, do you?
I just read here that this newlywed husband and wife go out every Sunday on a date. And no, not the boring movie + dinner kind (although I would give an arm and a leg for enough of these), but the “random” kind. Aptly named “Random Sunday”, this couple heads out every Sunday not knowing where the drive will take them. They’ve managed to watch a play, visit the planetarium, drop by an old cars exhibition, and many more such random things.
Well, although I’m trying really hard to stay out of “crib mode” these days, I must confess. Since we’ve been married, my husband and I have been on a grand total of TWO dates – one of which was on my birthday (yes, it required an event of such a scale to get him out for date night).
So, what do we do on Sundays? We spend time with our friends, or there’s always some lunch/dinner obligation we must attend to. Our social engagements never seem to end! Not that I don’t want to do these things as well (I’m just as guilty of saying “yes” to any and every group plan), but I feel like taking out the time to go on a date is essential. Especially when you’re living with your family. And since my husband works 6 days a week, Sunday is a good day (and probably the only day) to plan a relaxed date.
In one line – I want to go out on dates again. Dear husband, are you listening? I want it to be a constant part of our lives, not something we do once in a blue moon. We used to go out on 2-3 dates every week before the wedding! What happened?
Newlyweds – do you still go on dates with your husband? How often? Do you think it’s important?
