Keep your romance alight

A HOYTS LUX dou­ble pass

Parenting - - Hot Tips -

In be­tween tak­ing the kids to sleep­overs and sports prac­tice, how often do you spend time to­gether as a cou­ple – just the two of you? Date night is often the first thing to fall by the way­side once you start a fam­ily. Yet one of the most ful­fill­ing ways to keep your re­la­tion­ship happy and healthy is pri­ori­tis­ing time to­gether.

Date nights can be spon­ta­neous, or planned, but some­times plan­ning is the best way to make sure they hap­pen! They spirit you away from the grind of mak­ing lunches and the school run. But more than that, they re­vi­talise your re­la­tion­ship and your soul.

If you’re wor­ried about date nights not fit­ting into the bud­get – don’t. Date nights don’t have to be ex­pen­sive. When was the last time you had a pic­nic on the floor at home, or bet­ter yet, camped in the liv­ing room with pil­lows, snacks and movies with the kids safely at their grand­par­ents’?
