Things Married Couples Shouldn’t Ever Stop Doing

Getting married is great. You get to spend the rest of your life with the person you love most; your best friend. However, many couples think that once you get married your life forever changes. Sure, it changes, but not in a bad way. It’s a shame that so many couples think that the “rules” change when you have an official piece of paper and he same last name when that’s kind of the only thing that does change. Here are three things that should never change once you get married.

Date Night

You’re married. So? That doesn’t mean date night is a thing of the past. The happiest married couples know that they never stop dating. Even after almost 9 years of marriage and 12 years together, my husband and I schedule date night twice a month. It’s not as easy as it was before we had children, but we still date. We dress up, go out, flirt, dance and enjoy one another’s company just as much now as we did then – if not more.

Time to Yourself

Just because you’re married does not mean you never get to spend some time with “Me”. You are the most important person in your own life, and you have to bond with yourself every now and again to remember that. You don’t have to spend every waking second together. You still get to do what you enjoyed doing before you wed, whether that was an annual weekend at the spa with your mom and grandmother or the weekly book club you’ve belonged to for years.

Learning New Things

One of the best parts of being married is the fact that you have even more of an opportunity to learn new things about one another and together. Don’t stop learning just because you’re married. Make it a point to learn new things together. Travel, join clubs, take classes, plan an adventure; not only will you learn how to do something new and whether or not you enjoy it, you will also learn something new about one another as new situations often bring out things you might not previously have known.
