A date night or weekend out!! It’s not just a hilarious movie starring Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie; it’s the grown-up version of recess.
Yes, we all love spending time with our kids, but every now and then, married couples need to remember why they got married in the first place. Dates, anniversaries, night outs, name it. All these events are meant for reflection on each other and rekindling the flame of love between a man and his wife.
A date night helps to give couples a chance to enjoy each other’s company without distractions. It can be a blast. It can be adventurous or…….it can be a complete and utter disaster that ends abruptly with a frying pan to the face or a night sleeping on the couch…..Trust me!! You don’t want to mess this up.
We men have such a great habit of saying and doing the wrong thing at the wrong time during date nights or when we take our wives out. Well, here are some of the deadliest sins a man can do when he goes out on a date with his wife. I advise fellow men to avoid them at all costs.
1) Spending Time Apart:
The whole idea of going out on a date or a weekend trip is that you can have some time together with your wife. This event should act as one that strengthens the chemistry between the two of you. So any activity that would separate you should be avoided. Engage in all kinds of activity that would draw you closer to one another than keep you apart. The key word here is spending the whole time together.
2) Inviting your friends:
A date night or time out with your spouse is the ‘Us Time’ and should never include your or her friends. Taking your wife out to a club just as an excuse to watch a football game with your friends leaving her to hang around the other unfortunate wives or girlfriends is a relationship killer. The time you set apart for your dates or trips should only be for the two of you.
3) Checking Out the Competition:
The easiest way to kill your relationship or marriage is to take you wife out and spend time checking out other women or flirting around when your attention and focusshould be solely on your wife. The theory that men’s likeness to check out the competition as normal is just a flimsy excuse to deny your spouse the attention she needs from you when you are out on a date. She needs to feel loved, cherished and appreciated.
4) Carrying Work Along:
It’s been said all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. This is very true even for couples’ outings. Please leave your work at the office. Time set apart for your outings and dates should strictly be left to what they’re intended for. Never carry your work on a date or outing with your wife.
5) Engaging your cellphone/P.C.:
If it’s possible, ensure you switch off your phone and avoid carrying your P.C. to dates,night outs or any trip with your wife. This should give you ample time to spend with one another and appreciate each other .
