  • After 26 years years, NO, Lol! Demand away! I'm sure your kids are grown or almost grown so theres no reason for you to be stuck at home!

  • If you have older kids who can be at home by themselves, I would say take advantage of it and go on as many dates as you can!

  • Yes, our kids are grown and out on their own. I have a granddaughter thats 3. I keep her as much as they will allow, lol.

  • I also should have added: our last to leave the nest was our 25 yr old dau. Its kinda like we have to get to know each other all over again.

  • I don't think so.

    We've been married 25 years, our only has moved across country for college, and we have a "date" night 2-3 nights a week.. You know.. Scratch that. We have "date" night everynight. Even if we do not go "out", we have date night right here at home. Everynight has become date night for us since our son left home. We make the most of our nights, whether we are home, or out and about. We treat each night we have alone like a date night. Date night to us isn't about going out necessarily. Date night is about how we treat one another and interact with each other. We treat each night like a date night, we treat each other like we are on a "date" everynight. No matter where we are .

  • I say go out as much as possible. You're kids are grown, you need to enjoy this part of your life together and spend that quality time together that was once hard to come by. Demand away!!!
