I was recently given the chance to review a book on date nights in marriage, and I’m so excited to share that review with you here! This post contains affiliate links. If you click on my links and then buy something, it will be a big blessing on our little family. <3
Dating in Marriage by Brittany Putman has 12 date ideas you can do with your spouse throughout the year. Each date has a cute theme, and there are a number of questions you can ask each other during or after the date. It’s a nice way to connect with your spouse every month!
Especially after having babies, it can be difficult to really go on a date with your spouse. In this book, there are a number of dates where you don’t even have to leave the house, which is kind of my favourite kind of date. My husband and I love our date nights-in, and this book has a few of those. And, the other date ideas found in here are relatively cheap/easy to do. You don’t have to spend a fortune on any of the dates in the book, which I really appreciated. I also liked the fact that the dates are simple enough that Brittany doesn’t need to go on and on for pages. It’s written in a way that is directly to the point, so you don’t need to go searching for what the actual date idea is. It makes it easier to plan dates, because you can read a paragraph or two and then just go! I like that it’s not overly complicated, because dating your husband shouldn’t be complicated.
Another thing I really liked is the part at the end. Once you’re done your year of dates, there is a guide for a marriage retreat! There are three mini-sessions you can do with your spouse at the location of your choosing. All that is asked of you is that you go for 1 to 2 nights, and that you go by yourselves. What a neat idea! I love that you can have a little marriage retreat with your spouse and it doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg, and it’s totally guided by this book.
Overall, I really enjoyed reading this book, and I can’t wait to try out some of these dates with my husband. 🙂 You can read more information about this book from the author’s blog here!
