In your dating years, there seems to be no shortage of fun things to do together. Once you get married and fall into the normal routines, it can be hard to break free. It is important that you engage in fun activities with your spouse to keep your friendship going.
Here are a few ideas of things you can do with your spouse for fun.
Develop a Shared Interest
Depending on your stage in life, these interests are going to range. You won’t always have the time and money to do expensive hobbies together. Come up with some things that will meet your current needs.
It can be difficult to come up with an interest that both of you will enjoy. Likely, it is going to take some compromise and giving on both people’s parts.
To keep from one person having the advantage over the other one, try to find something neither of you have done before. This will make the learning experience a lot of fun. Not only that, you will both have the chance to discover a new skill together.
Some of these types of interests could include:
- Bird Watching
Any type of interest that you both can get into is worth the effort.
Come Up With Active Dates
Don’t get into the dating rut and allow the time away to fizzle out. Come up with active dates that you and your spouse can do. During the warmer weather, there are plenty of outdoor date ideas such as:

Other great date ideas can include:

Dating doesn’t have to be dinner and a movie every time. There are plenty of alternatives to that, which will provide you with a lot of fun. There’s even games you can play in the bedroom with your spouse if you’re feeling in the mood but want to try something new, creative, safe, and appropriate.

There is nothing as bonding as volunteering somewhere with your spouse. This is a great way to enjoy one another’s company while you invest in the world around you.
Shared experiences will increase teamwork between the two of you. Also, you will get to see a different side of your spouse that you may have not have a chance to see very often.
Finding things to do together that brings you both pleasure is important to the health of your marriage. Developing your friendship is the best way to safeguard your marriage against divorce.
