15 Fun Summer Date Ideas for You and Your Spouse

There is something so special about summer not captured any other time of the year; we feel renewed and energetic! At least I do, as the winter chill lifts and those hot nights settle in. I want to be out more—exploring, absorbing, enjoying--the few months of the year that the days are longer. With that, there is no one I’d rather spend time with than my handsome husband.

Research shows time and again that those married couples who date regularly, and furthermore, try new activities together, tend to have more meaningful relationships. A study published by Indiana State University in 2014 showed that couples who engaged in new experiences together on a regular basis had more romantic relationships long-term. Bottom line—get out with your spouse this summer and have fun together!

The ideas below for summer date nights will encourage time together that will hopefully create lifelong memories.
