  • We've been out without the kids twice in the past 5 years (since we had children). And we don't plan to any time soon. The whole time we're gone we just worry about the kids, so we can't enjoy ourselves...

  • About once a week. But he hasn't really met my son (we are taking it slow because of my last relationship)

  • When my kids were young, we rarely got to go out alone. We didn't have child care, and couldn't afford a babysitter and dinner or a movie or other activity.

    We did start doing date night at home. We'd rent a grown up movie, feed the kids and put them to bed, then we'd have our romantic dinner and movie at home, or other at home plans. We did this once a week for years. Now that our kids are grown, we get lots of 'date' nights.

    It is important to nurture your relationship. Good Luck!

  • Once a week or so, we do get every other weekend kid free so for sure those weekends we have for just us.

  • Once a week at least. Our 14 yr old son is able to babysit so we have more freedom now.

  • quite often, but our kids are in their late teens. it gets easier to have a happy marriage when your kids are older...less stress

  • May be once a month if we are lucky. We are both working parents trying to raise our kids at the same time. Sitters are expensive and grandparents live far away. But somehow me manage.
