How often do you have "date nights"?

Just asking because tomorrow night is date night for me... once a week we go out as a family, but once every 2 weeks, or once a month DH and I go out dancing. Just curious to see if anyone else has a similar regiment.

  • We use to have a date night once a week but since my Husbands schedule changed at work and he works nights and sleeps all day we don't have much time.
    But date night is a great thing and keeps the spice in the marriage .

  • Date night? What's that? I can't remember the last time DH and I went out on a date.

  • It's been years since we have gone out on our own without the kiddos.

  • We go out as a family once a week. DH and I get date night once a month or so. At least now we do. I have a niece that turned 16 last September and she babysits for us now.

  • all the time!!! but we always take the kids with us on date nights. and we're usually in by 7pm. and we only go to kid friendly places like chuck e cheese or frozen yogurt shops. never a movie or dancing. mostly a mickey d's with a play place. ;)

  • Like Mrs. Bat, I have to ask what a date night is. DH and I can't afford to go out, and finding a sitter for our son is like pulling hen's teeth! He is living with autism, and we can't afford respite care, and no one seems to understand that just because he is living with autism, he won't go into a meltdown at the drop of a hat.

  • We go out every once in a while, but nothing regular. Our DD often spends the weekend with my folks so we have time together or time to do whatever we want separately...

  • one day we will have date night. our son is only 3 months, and we dont have anyone we trust completely yet to watch him. so one day.

  • Whenever he isn't in the field or doing some pointless training (military man), we have:

    Date Night Fridays....Normally go to TGIF, Chilis, or a bar and eat junk food and have drinks
    Sleep In Saturdays- Sleep in late and go to the mall or park
    Sex Sundays- Stay in bed and have sex all day with junk food at bedside ;)

    I suggest a naked week too! One week out of the year where you do EVERYTHING completely naked (in the house of course)
