By all means go on a date with your spouse. I recommend at least twice a month if you have children, and once or twice a week if you don't have children. My husband and I spend so much time with our kids, that just going to the grocery store for an hour w/o them is considered a date to us(pretty pathethic). We really get excited when we go to dinner, or to the movies, and sometimes we get to stay at area hotels overnight boy is that fun!!! So stay connected to your spouse(I know that's not as easy as it sounds). Smile every once in a while, and don't forget to ask "how was your day", it's the little things that count.
