I am not married but from what i have learned over the years, apparently it is the best thing you would do for your marriage. rekindling those moments keeps the fire burning. You will always remind yourselves of the things that brought the two of you together.

Well, since you're married to your husband, I would assume that it's alright to go out on a date and let loose every once and a while. If you need a break from the baby, you can always hire a local babysitter for a couple hours while the two of you go to a nice restaurant or do something to unwind. It's at this critical time in life that you need to establish trust and good communication with your husband - otherwise, the relationship can become volatile and blow up in your faces. Be sure that the two of you save time for each other outside of the baby, so that the relationship doesn't spiral out of control. However, do keep in mind that the baby should be a first priority at most times - it needs to be cared for!

Marriage is not all flowers,roses and perfumed.Their are thorns too especially when babies come in.At that point,you discover that marriage is way different from a relationship.

When you were dating,their was no baby.. tension was almost non existent but with the baby comes a whole slew of responsibilities.You need to take care of the baby..baby food,baby clothes.. all the things the baby need does not come free.Bills start piling up..In addition,the wife  pays more attention to the baby at this point..knowing the amount of laundry this little creature can generate is enough to drive a sane wife cray cray .

Well, you are still married and you guys need to weather the storm together.Going on a date once in a while wouldn't hurt because if you don't water the relationship, it will die.

Marriage requires work from both party and you need to both make sure that your marriage doesn't crash.

You may use the help of your mother in law to help in taking care of the baby while you guys go somewhere to mellow out.Goodluck

Yes,  I think going on dates while married is one good way of keeping the marriage strong. When you go on such dates, you get to have a couple's time without the interference of kids and house chores. This way,  you see each other as two people who love each other,  you get to share ideas during the date and just enjoy your love.  This will keep the love strong which makes the marriage  stay stronger.

I don't think its such a good idea. You're already married and even have a kid, the best thing you can do is to focus on your marriage and how you can make it stronger. Of course you'll need his attention some of the time. Everyone wants a happy family and the moment you start following him here and there he might even become worse.

It is not bad to go on a date every once in a while as a husband and wife. You also need a little time for each other to talk about your family, to bond with each other just like when you are still in a girlfriend-boyfriend relationship.

Dating is a good idea, because at this stage of relationship you get to understand each other strengths and weaknesses. Habits that are not compatible can be discussed before the real marriage. So courtship or dating is actually a test of the relationship if it will last through marriage. Mistakes most people make is to observe strange behavior without communicating their concerns with their partner.
