“My husband and I used to have date nights on every single Friday. The economy has definitely hit our pockets and we now have to save our “date” funds for those just-in-case something happens days. These days, our Friday evenings/nights are spent getting cozy with a book or with the latest DVD release. I’ve never read this many books in my life, nor watched as many movies as I do now. I can’t complain, though. Seeing my husband read is quite a thrill and his getting me to watch action movies is a joy too. We’ve been able to enhance intimate quality time together which has helped our marriage."
