In order to keep the spice alive in a married couple’s relationship it is essential to constantly revisit the courtship period by going on regular dates and outings together. People grow accustomed to each other over time and eventually they just stop doing the simple things that they used to like socializing, going for parties, to clubs, dancing, eating at fancy restaurants etc. It’s normal to step into the routine life and to forget about the other exciting things that can add more fun to a relationship.
The ball lies in the married couple’s court, to take action against becoming a routine couple that does nothing besides eat, sleep and work. It helps to make little groups with friends that are also married so that a group outing can cheer everyone up and act as a relaxing social experience. Here are a few date ideas for married couples:

A night out at a fancy club
Once a couple gets married and once they get used to each other, they pretty much stop taking care of themselves and their appearance in front of each other as they used to before they were married. Planning a night out to go dancing in a club once in a way is therefore a good way to rekindle the reasons they fell in love and got married in the first place.
A romantic evening in a hotel
A married couple should continue doing what they used to with each other before they got married. Meaning which they should go on overnight trips, plan for fancy dinners etc. Book a fancy hotel room and stay there for a weekend to spice things up.
A wine and cheese date
Buy a couple of expensive wine bottles and get some typical French cheese and plan a date in your own backyard. Play some soft music, drink wine and talk about future plans and your life together.
A gas balloon ride
As a married couple your life together should be filled with exciting moments. Hire a gas balloon and go on a ride around your city someday. It will be fun and romantic and you will enjoy the experience to the full.
Book a cruise
Another extraordinary way to go out on a date once married is to go on a cruise. Depending on the location, brand etc you can choose a cruise that suits your budget. Pick one that takes you to a romantic beach resort to have a unique touch to the date.
Go play paintball
Don’t you remember how in college a game of paintball was always so much fun? Well, just because you are all grown up and married doesn’t mean you have to stop all that. Plan a day wherein you can play paintball together. Drown each other in an array of colors and enjoy every moment of the game.
Go on a holiday abroad
Since you are married, both of you together would be able to chip in and go for a holiday. Pick the right season and explore a place you haven’t before and go on several dates there, visit all the new restaurants there and take lots of pictures for your album.
Go skydiving or bungee jumping
If both of you are adventurous people then this could be the ideal date for you – a skydiving venture. Make sure you are trained well before you take the jump. Some places allow a couple to jump together when tied to a single rope, so opt for that to make it more special.
If you are married to each other and are now used to coming home to each other, do something different for a change. Meet for coffee like you used to during your courtship period and just take the time to talk about your love for each other.
Rent a home movie
Make a date of a home movie, hire a cd from the local record library and sip some wine or cocktails while you watch the movie together. Enjoy these special moments with each other like you are supposed to.
