It's like a little handbook for marriage. I must toot my own marriage horn here - other than "dating" once a week and romantic getaways (not easy with kids) we pretty much follow this list. But I like the idea of dating each week. Might have to bring that up...

Thanks for sharing!

I failed on the first three right off the bat! Hubby leaves for work before I wake up - my wedding ring gets in the way of my household duties - and we don't date once a week. I'm afraid to read the rest of the list. :)

How wonderful! Makes me wish I was married, so I could try all this stuff!

I'd better print this out...we've got a few of them down pat, but I'm thinking we could use some work on the others - me probably more than Randey. He IS the romantic in this relationship. lol
