I am going to be very honest with all of you — our first year of marriage was a little rough for my husband and I in the night department. I was fighting migraines almost every day for 6 months, Bryan was adjusting to a new job that was extremely short staffed which meant a LOT of night hours for him, and I started my business.
So basically, there was a lot going on that date night at home or out was not on our list of priorities. We learned a lot from that year about what not to do.
We started setting marriage goals and carving out time together has consistently stayed at the top of that list. Stay At Home Date Nights after Liam goes to bed is the easiest way for us to reconnect, talk about more than a quick run down of our days or schedule logistics, and have fun!
Yes, our date nights at home really are fun, or casual, or romantic, or memorable!
At least not the types of ideas I want. All intended to help you put dating your partner at the top of your marriage goals list!

If you really need a push to reconnect, consider doing a challenge like 14 Days of Love. When we first took up this challenge, we did a date night at home every single day for the date 14 days of February. Since, we have also done the 14 Days of Love challenge during an entire month, committing to having 14 date nights in during that particular month. Any of the date ideas below could work for the 14 days challenge. All you need to do is choose which dates to include and how you want to choose throughout the month.
You could schedule them out in advance or you could be spontaneous, writing them on popsicle sticks or slips of paper, placing them in a mason jar, and choosing at random. We love movies in this house, so while movie nights are not the best date ideas for reconnecting and communication, they are still fun!
Games are big in this house! They are a fun way to use your brain and an interesting test of personalities. Game nights are probably our one way of truly connecting. So here are a few different types of games nights we have for date night in:. The options are really endless here, and I am hoping to tackle an entire theme night post in the future here, but here are a few fun suggestions:.
