Date nights at home, and making special time for just the 2 of you at home. Is just as affective in a marriage as going out and painting the town red is. What makes these things affective isn't the going out together, it's the interpersonal interaction between the 2 people. How they look at one another, how they speak to one another, what they talk about, how they touch, etc.. Those things can all be done 24 hours a day right at home. It just takes putting in the effort to do those things to one another.
Treating each other with loving actions goes a long way. A lot longer than a date here and there will. Because the actions and how you treat one another daily will keep you connected, keep you loving/acting in love/feeling in lofe. Which is why people go on "dates", to keep those feelings alive. Those feelings can be kept alive just by the way a couple chooses to interact with one another on a daily basis.
