May 4, 2016 by Laura 54 Comments I have an almost 19-year old and a 16-year old, a 14-year old and an 11- year old. We’ve watched and guided as couples dive into some very deep waters together and we all experience God at work. Of all the subjects we tackle with engaged and married couples, rarely do we talk about dating each other once you’re married.
I know that various ideas work for some and not others, so sometimes we need to listen with an open mind, pray, and then move on if the advice isn’t something we can go with. I’m curious to hear from you whether you are a newlywed, have been married for 70 years, or are somewhere in between.
My husband and I have been married 34 years and during all the years the children were at home, we went on a weekly date. Parents that do not care for their marriages during the kid years find themselves in for a huge shock when the last one leaves the nest.
I remember at a church thing one time, the speaker was talking about watching in church as mom and dad got separated on the bench by 1 child, then 2, 3, etc, then it started reversing as kids left the nest.
My husband and myself have been married for 8 years and have a five year old, a three year old and one on the way.
And all you older ladies who are saying there is LESS time once the kids get older have really depressed me. I know that the past 15 years with my husband has been wonderful with a few bumps along the way and I can’t imagine not being with him 15+ years from now. I am rambling and didn’t offer any advice but wanted to say thank you to those who have offered advice.
When they were little we budgeted for a sitter, and when money was tight we asked Granny or one of the aunts to watch them.
It’s all in attitude and priorities in our opinion and we try our best to put it first. We’ve been married for 24 years and have tried to make meaningful conversations a priority.
Not that we can stop doing daily things for each other, dating is just a boost to our relationship. However, I think it’s important to note that a marriage CAN be completely God-honoring and healthy with less alone time than has been mentioned in some of the above comments.
I’ve been married for nine years and have five young children, but Friday night is date night!
Date night is nice and good, but it’s not absolute necessary to have in order to have a strong marriage. Also, we’re not great at this, but just choosing a time to be alone together without interruptions is key. My friend with young adult children still living at home says they ask their sons to leave for so many hours (and not come home before!), in order to actually have privacy in their own home, so that can work when they’re old enough to drive. We have a lot of time together as a family and a busy schedule of sports and church commitments. 2.) The next thing you need to do is make the page margins 1 inch on all four sides and have it double spaced. I just wanted to let you know I happened on your site because I was trying to learn what MLA is.
This did help me with what i had already knew how to do but i needed help on how to cite the citations at the end.

This site worked Great im a freshman and i worked soooo hard on an essay i had to do and i got a D- so i was like wtf!? In order to be able to listen to the samples you must install Flash Player 9 or newer version.
Then last month while talking to a godly couple who has been married longer than we have, they brought up the subject of dating.
We are coming up on 20 years in September, and have six children ages 18, 16, 13, 11, 8 and 4. He said he didn’t want to get back beside his wife and wonder who the stranger he had his arm around was. It is so easy to get caught up with homeschooling, child rearing, cooking, cleaning, home making, etc.
Life is short and our spouse is our life long partner and they must be tended too just as much as our children. Although we don’t get to go out on date nights often, we NEED intentional weekly times at home to reconnect for sure. We run most evenings together and this is a great time to get caught up with each other uninterrupted, with no distractions. Outside of a relationship with Our Lord, the most important thing in a marriage is communication. Funny, because as a kid I begged for a hamburger if we were out for breakfast anytime near 11 am. I remember one of the first and best parenting courses we took years ago emphasized the importance of the marriage relationship and the kids seeing and respecting the priority. I’m a mom trying to help my sixth grader format his science fair report and this was great help. To find a person's birthday, it is important to know her full first, middle and last name, as well as the city of residence. God has given us the opportunity to offer several classes in our home for young married couples.
Now, we are blessed to work from home together and school our boys at home together, so we are together many hours of the day.
We can all benefit from hearing what is working (or what isn’t working) from couple to couple. He likes to be home and we are content to just enjoy each other’s company after the children are in bed. While we are not able to go on a date every week we make time to be together when we are home and get out and do something together like grocery shopping.
I always thought it would be easier when our kids were older, but like you mentioned, with all of our activities it’s crazy busy! We often just make or buy a coffee (yay – coffee!), and go for a drive or sit somewhere and chat. I am a mother,and i find it hard to find time to study.May the lord bless you as you continue to teach people like myself. A few years ago He even opened the door for us to begin couple-to-couple pre-marital mentoring, where we spend many weeks with an engaged couple, tackling all the subjects of marriage from the blissful to the challenging. The kids activities keep us very very busy, but there is always a little time somewhere on the weekend or even for a weekday lunch! My husband sometimes walks with me but more and more his arthritic knee and hips prevent this.

It has gone from traditional, hiring a sitter and going to dinner and a movie, to very creative. God’s victory has been great over all of this, and just about every time I speak of it, I get teary eyed.
I will say that every week my husband has started going grocery shopping with me and we do get that time together to talk and sometimes we stop for a cup of coffee.
We do change the date night occasionally to meet other commitments, but it is the exception not the rule. One year I set up a table in our bedroom and my husband brought home take out for an anniversary dinner.
Knowing a person's location or middle name is not always required, but it can be helpful when searching for someone with a common name. And about when in the world I might possibly find a moment to have more than a five-minute conversation with my favorite man that doesn’t end with me falling asleep in the middle of his sentence at night. Remember we take time to work on our hobbies, dating our spouse is working on our marriage.
When the first four were little we had a date night weekly; probably more for our sanity.???? I had no idea what the instructor was asking for (I thought I did) and turned in my homework, only to find It was not correct because what I had used was not MLA. For example, a search for a John Smith's birthday turns up many John Smiths across the country. Sometimes I sneak out and meet him somewhere right after he gets off work (because before 5 there is an awesome fish taco place that has two-for-one tacos before 5!).
You don’t need to date to be happily married but you do have to work at togetherness. We have our 4th baby coming very soon and I have so appreciated that time with him each week.
Knowing his middle name and location may be the only way to differentiate him from all the other John Smiths. I miss it when he has to work late and I have to go the next day alone or with just the kids. Most days we send the kids to the sandbox to play so mom and dad can visit or we put them to bed early and make us a nice snack to enjoy together in peace and quiet. When the kids were quite little (we had 3 in 4 years) we would give them a peanut butter sandwich when we got home from church and put them in bed while we put some effort into our Lunch.
One of our more fun dates was going to our local family fun place with mini golf and arcade games.
It provides access to birth, marriage and death records for more than a billion names around the world.
Birth registration correction applications are available at the register office where the birth was originally registered or at the General Register Office.
