Ideas for inexpensive dates with my hubby

We never get out, quite honestly. Im trying to find some nice inexpensive things we can go do together. Im afraid we might be losing sight of why we fell in love in the first place. We have so many stresses, and so much to do, we never think about relationship stuff anymore. Any advice?

  • I like to play games at home (we include the kids). We play wahoo and yahtzee and the kids don't know it but Santa is bringing them a playstation for Christmas so we'll be playing that too. There's some sex games you can play too (doesn't have to be like actual sex but you win messages, back rubs, foot rubs, kisses, hugs etc)

  • Dinner at home, maybe in a weird place, like the living room floor. Go for walks, window-shop, do a Parade of Homes (if they have one by you) and talk about your dreams!

  • Ooh! I know a ton!
    Going "back seating" at a lookout point
    Happy Hour
    Browsing adult stores
    Going "window shopping" for lingerie; go to a boutique and let him watch you try stuff on!
    A cheap motel and a cheap bottle of booze (it will make you feel so deliciously dirty!)
    Roller Skating and holding hands during the slow songs :)
    Take a painting class together at your local rec center
    Join a co ed soccer team; you will have an automatic date once a week and getting all sweaty and staying active together is so much fun!

  • Go for a bike ride together. My husband and I joined both coed softball and kickball leagues this year and it was amazing. We had so much fun together because when we weren't practicing or playing with the team we would hang out in the backyard and practice. It helped us in two ways. One was of course having that extra reason to spend time together. The other reason was that we knew that we were both working to accomplish the same goal but it was a different goal than your typical good parenting, or financial freedom or all of the other things that go into a marriage or family. It was a step outside the box.
