After 10 years of marriage, the spark in my marriage is thankfully still there, but there just seems to be something missing. Don’t get me wrong; the awkward gay dating phases are long forgotten and certainly not missed, but there still feels like an improvement could be made. Even after all the enjoyable hours and days spent with my mate, but there was just one small piece missing. While those awkward early days may be in the past, the fun part of spending time together had also been discarded. After much consideration, my spouse and I determined that we needed to have some more fun every once in a while. Learning new things as a couple is one of the keys to keeping the relationship young and fresh. After implementing the new date-night rule in our household we realized that going out while married is ten times better than going out to find a mate is. What a wonderful discovery!
