Things Happy Couples Always Do Before Bed

1. TAKE A STROLL. “We normally spend all our evenings together. We both work at home and a 45-minute walk through the neighborhood is a good end to the work day and start to the evening.” -Linda M., married 16 years

 

2. GET IT ON. If we’ve gone more than a week without having sex, we both make a point to make time for that. I honestly believe that if you go too long without sex (like more than two to three weeks unless you physically can’t, due to illness or being apart) it can severely damage the connection in a relationship.-Kaitlin S., married six years

 

3. SPEND QUALITY TIME IN THE KITCHEN. –Every night we cook dinner together, or at least keep one another company while the other cooks. When one of us gets home, the other always fixes the other a drink (usually not alcoholic, could just be sparkling water with lemon!) and for some reason that always feels like a nice way to start the evening.-Ashley W., married two years

 

4. MAKE PILLOW TALK MORE MEANINGFUL. –At bedtime, we each share what our three best memories are from the day and one thing that we are grateful for. We also sleep holding hands.-Echo G., married 35 years

 

5. SCHEDULE A REGULAR NIGHT OUT. –I never really understood the concept of having regular “date nights” after marriage, but now I totally get it! Going out really encourages conversation and forces you to relax and just spend time together in a way you don’t when you’re sitting around at home. I love having dinner at home with my husband, but there’s a huge difference between eating and then quickly getting up to do the dishes and clean up as compared to just enjoying a nice meal at a restaurant. I think doing fun things together is a great way to keep your marriage enjoyable and healthy.-Zara H., married one year
