Date Night Questions


Date nights are great, but sometimes they lack good conversation. This is why we make a rule on such nights not to talk about the calendar, the kids, work, school, etc. Make your date night conversation about the two of you. Below are some questions to help get you started. Pick one or two ahead of time to ask when you’re finally alone and able to think. Most of all–have fun!
