Remember back to the days that you were dating?The times when you went on all sorts of adventures and had all sorts of fun? I sure do! Those were fun times. Sometimes it’s hard to come up with date ideas so, today, I want to share 53 Simple Ideas for Dating your Spouse!

I believe that it’s highly important to keep dating after we get married.  It’s easy to take each other for granted after we’ve gotten married. Sure, we still love one another, but everyday life can get in the way. We can feel like we spend every day together, so why should we still date?

Dating is what helps keep our marriage alive and thriving.

I’m writing this post to encourage you to get back into dating your spouse. Ladies, I also encourage you, don’t wait for your man to plan every, single date. Make sure you make the time to plan some dates as well.

Today, I’m sharing a round-up of some great posts that include ideas for what to do on dates. Many of them are simple and most are inexpensive. I hope that these ideas will help you to get your creative juices flowing.

53 Simple Ideas for Dating Your Spouse

Anne over at Birds and Berry has a great post with free and inexpensive date ideas. My favorite idea is definitely to ride bikes or play a sport together, but that’s probably because I love to be outside. You can check this post out here.

Starla over at Starla Jimenez has a great post about date ideas for Valentine’s Day. While it is labeled for Valentine’s Day, there are many awesome ideas for any time.  My favorite is probably the couples’ massage. My husband is amazing at giving massages. Every once in awhile, I have to actually give him one as well. 🙂 Check out the post here.

Starla from over at Starla Jimenez also has a date night post just for fall. One of her ideas in this post is “Paying it Forward.” I have to say that I absolutely LOVE this idea. It is one that I’ve always thought would be fun, but that we’ve never done yet. You can check this post out here.

Julie from over at Unmasking the Mess has a great post on why married couples need to continue with date nights. I think one of the most interesting things to note is that a high percentage of married couples don’t do date night. You can check out this post here.

Jessica from over at Inspire the Mom has a cute little post up about how she and her husband did one of their dates together for just $5.00. If you scroll to the bottom of the post, you’ll find a few extra ideas for $5.00 dates. You can check out this post here.


Liz over at Mommy Mannegren has written a post about her rollerskating adventure date night. I’ve always wanted to try rollerskating. Of course, I fear that I just might be quite the sight to behold. Sounds like a great idea to connect with a date, though. You can check out this post here.

If you enjoyed this content, I’d love if you’d take a moment to share it with a friend or via social media.

  1. Thank you for sharing my post! It’s easy to tell ourselves when the kids are older/gone that we will get more intentional about this, but our relationship with our spouse needs to be intentional throughout the years!
    Blessings to you Rosanna!

    1. Thanks for giving me permission to share it, Julie! I really appreciate it. It is so true that we need to be intentional with our spouses even now when the kids are younger and always. Blessings to you as well, Julie!

  2. Yes! I wrote one like this a while back. It is so important to still date even when married. We are trying to stay in the habit. We have a fun list and a date night jar : )

    1. It’s so true that dating reminds us of the reasons we fell in love in the first place. Thanks for stopping by, Jodie!

  3. Wanna know why I appreciate your post? Because I almost cried when I read some of the simple ideas! My husband and I have been so overwhelmed with a rehab and move that we haven’t been taking time for each other. I’m inspired by the simple ideas here and am thinking—it IS possible to spend some quality time together — even if for a moment! Thanks…

    1. Aww, Amy, I’m sorry to hear that life has been so tough for you. I pray that you will use one of these simple ideas and get away together. It really does make a difference. Have a blessed day!

  4. Great ideas. My husband and I were able to implement one of the ideas today. A date in the yard gardening. Which always needs to be followed up with sitting on the swinging bench together surveying our domain and hard work. 🙂

    1. Oh! I love that you were able to implement one of the ideas and also that you got to sit together and look over your hard work. Thanks for stopping by, Theresa!

  5. Rosanna – My husband would most definitely want a roller skating date night LOL – these are all amazing ideas for dates, and I love how you included some that do not cost anything. A few years ago, for Christmas I made my husband a box with 12 dates – one for each month – some were extravagant (but I used gift cards and gift certificates for) and some were not.. one of his favorite one was going to watch roller derby LOL . My favorite – going to Seattle and doing a food tour in Pikes Market – yummy! Thanks for linking up with me at #TuneInThursday last week, I sure hope to see you again this week
