Some marriage therapists suggest couples make date nights to spend time with each other away from their children. Taking it a step further, many also recommend that the parents not discuss their offspring during their excursion so the pair stays focused on each other and their intimate relationship.
A tough task for braggadocios. Parents dying to share funny stories or boast about their tot's accomplishments may find it hard to keep tight-lipped on the wee subject for those few hours. However, those minutes may instead be filled with laughter and compliments for each other, reminding mama and papa just why they fell in love in the first place.
