31 Fun things to do as a couple
I don’t know about you, but I need some fresh ideas about fun things to do with my husband. Don’t get me wrong, we have a lot of fun together but we tend to do the same things over and over.
So I’m ready for a few new ideas. How about you?
Aren’t you curious to know about what fun things other couples do?
Date night lists are fun, but I think it’s more exciting to hear from other people. So, I asked a few ladies to share some of their secrets about the fun and bonding activities that they do with their significant other.
It is important to remember that you do not have to go all out or spend a lot of money to have quality time with your husband. The most important thing is to be present, and to enjoy each other’s company.
Not all dates are going to be perfect, just learn to see the good in every circumstance, be grateful for the little things and your relationship will be stronger.

It’s like our relationship tune-up.Sarah Ann from Inkblotsofhope.com

Me and my husband have our most quality time together when just get in the car and go for a drive. We love talking. We can talk for hours, so driving has always been our thing. If it’s a weeknight, we drive to deserted areas where we can see the stars better.
On weekends, we will just wake up and say let’s go! We will do day trips to new spots we find on IG or Facebook in AZ. We give ourselves 1 hr to get ready. Sometimes we don’t even think about where we are going till we get in the car, then we pull out our phones and choose a place.Carmen Brown from Marriedbyhisgrace.com
We love to go for long walks on the beach.Amanda

We have fun playing Yahtzee via phone app. We pass it back and forth and tease each other about who’s ahead. We also love sipping wine and watching Suits (our latest fav show) or taking our wine out on the back porch if it’s nice out.
