I've been married 21 years. Right now you are probably in the most busy and stressful stage of your marriage. Looking after young children is expensive, demanding, stressful and exhausting. You aren't going to feel sexy or in the mood very often and it is going to take understanding and effort from both of you. Date nights (or days) are so important because it allows you to spend time together as a couple. It doesn't have to be expensive, a walk in park or a drive in the country works just as well as dinner and a movie.

The good news is that as the children grow older and more independent, it gives you more freedom as a couple to indulge in those common interests that you have cultivated. It's like hanging out with your best friend again.
To keep your dh from straying, don't let sex become routine and don't be afraid to try new things. One of the things that keeps my dh faithful (by his own admission) is that I'm still unpredictable, even though he knows so well.
