52 Fantastic Dates For Fearless Married Couples

By Keishia Lee-Louis

You mean we still have to date? Couples looking to renew their relationships ask this question all of the time. The answer is a resounding YES!!! It’s the best way to ward off infidelity and a lack of satisfaction with your relationship.

Think about it. Wasn’t that the most interesting time in your relationship? You and your spouse were just getting to know one another and everything was fresh and new.

If you want to keep the spark in your marriage, sometimes you have to act as though you’re still dating. No kids, no bills, no work. Nothing to distract you from getting to know each other a little better.

    Almost 19 years of marriage and I can say that we've done about 90% of these things. I guess that's why we are still married, we believe in fun, fun, fun!
