Reinventing Date Night

I just read an interesting article in “The Saturday Evening Post” July/August edition. The title was “Marriage Makeover: Reinventing Date Night”. The article talked about several studies of long-term couples where the goal was to see if adding novelty to a relationship or to date nights helped the relationship. Things like changing restaurants or trying new things together. The article also talked about brain science and brain scans as related to things people could do in marriage that changed their brain chemistry for the positive.

It just reminded me of the importance of trying new things with my wife. It doesn’t have to be anything totally crazy like sky diving, but just little things – a different restaurant, style of movie, or date night being a different day/time of the week. Just simple changes may make a big difference.
