If you've been a relationship for a while - or even married for a while - do you still make time to go out on dates with your significant other?

This has been increasingly hard for my husband and I since we had kids, but if you have any tips for great easy date nights when you've got little ones and can't always find a babysitter, I'd love to hear them! Most the time we just watch a movie and have some dinner at home.

When I was still dating my wife and we weren't yet married, we made our date schedule to be every weekend. We would make out time and hang out to just catch fun because it's very important in getting us to know each other very well.

Going on more than one date is very important in one's relationship because it's how you get to bond well with your partner before you both decide to take the bigger step with getting married.

I think it really depends on your situation, if you have a house and kids, your priorities are probably elsewhere, however, if you're in a relationship and have no major outgoings, I think dates are quite frequent, for me they were, anyway.

What do you consider a date? Going out for food with the other half? A romantic meal? If so, I did that quite a lot!

I think it's important to take time out though and spend quality time with your significant other.   :)

Yes. If you have a positive mind about love you will still go on a date no matter how hurt you have been or no matter how painful it was to be left alone with someone who didn't value you. It was a matter of choice and I choose to go on life and move on because that's life goes back and forth. It's either you choose to be happy again or depress for all your life. Let's have learned to rise up and be thankful that we know, I know the real essence of love. Love is a choice and not just an emotion over us.

Anything like that to me is great! Basically anything where you can have some quality time is helpful. With our young ones right now and not living somewhere particularly close to family, it's sometimes hard for us to actually go out - so we often just get takeout to have at home...but we try and make the time special! We're even a fan of playing board games and stuff like that at home! Just stuff that gets us connecting and chatting with one another.

Me and my wife also have the same situation with you and your husband because we have three kids but still we are dating even in our backyards during night time, all we did is to bring out our TV, chairs or sofa and grilling a pork BBQ while watching movies and having a dinner also, we talk to each other about important things about our family while watching our kids playing. There is no need to find a good venue what matters is all of you is happy and having fun.

Me and my girlfriend rarely go on dates cause we don't see each other much (We are working on getting an apartment and an office for me.).  Anyway, though, when we do meet, we might visit Pizza Hut or Taco Bell.  Anyway, the last really fancy place we went was Applebees last year.

I haven't been married yet but when I was in a relationship before we rarely went out on a date and that's made our relationship dull. Having dates with your partner is really important even if you have kids already. It makes your relationship stronger it's like the old days that you just randomly talking about any stuff while you were on a date. Find a time to go out it's not important how often you have dates the important thing is the quality time that you've been together.

12 years in marriage and two kids make it so hard to go out on dates. I can't even remember the last time we had one. I guess the main reason is the lack of time being both of us working full time. Late night coffee at home is the best "date" we could do for now.

Having dates mean having time for your other half no matter how hectic your schedule is me and my soulmate talked that we will always have date atleast once a week like we will dine outside or just watching movie and talk about random things and to have update of each other lives. I wish to do this with him.
