What do you do to keep the spark burning between you and your spouse?  Do you feel more or less connected to him now than before you had kids?

We have dates to have us time, once a month when we can.

Our connection is much deeper. We were teen parents and have grown and learned so very much. We keep the sexy for each other, lol. We have an "at home" date night once a week. We book a beautiful suite as a getaway (with the kids, lol) every month or two. We hold hands and kiss and talk about life. We love being with each other.

We have date nights after the kids go to bed, snuggle watch tv or a movie. Also we try to have ummm a bed date no less than 3-4 times a month.

We have date nights...we "gross out" the kids by kissing where they can see us...we say "I love you" whenever we can, etc.  It's not that we feel more or less connected since we had the kids, but it's a different connection since we had kids.  A more grown up connection.

We communicate on any and everything. You have to keep the communication open and you both have to give and take together. We have date mornings, we have 2 hours and just cuddle in bed, watch some TV, talk and enjoy that one on one time.
