Light some candles, turn off the technology, face each other and just chat!

Monopoly, scrabble, Jenga, whatever floats your boat. I bet it will end in some competitive fun! Have a look at these ones for some guaranteed giggles that will have you reminiscing and probably discovering something new about your new husband or wife.

One day a week or even once a month, drop all commitments. Leave work at work, drop the kids with a baby sitter, dress to impress and get yourselves out of the house!

Chances are, one of you will do the majority of the cooking, so choose a recipe that neither of you have made before and follow it through together. Then pour a nice glass of wine ) and enjoy your lovely home cooked meal!

It’s cold right now but get wrapped up, take a flask and go for a walk somewhere pretty. You’ll find yourselves chatting and enjoying each other’s company. Could you dedicate an hour a weekend to a lovely snuggled up stroll through the countryside.

If you’re tired or hungry it’s easy to pick at each other. It’ll be much easier for everyone if you acknowledge this and ask your other half to go easy on you, maybe hold off on some of the sarcasm, so that you don’t feel the need to punch them for mentioning yet another tea ring or left up toilet seat.

Not all of the time you spend together needs to be expensive! Check out the ideas for this.

Choose a room in your house to redecorate together, agree on all the decisions, the colour, furnishings and enjoy being a team.

Whether it’s a holiday, a house move/renovation or a baby, grab yourself a saving pot and put all of your £2 coins in to it. Enjoy watching it grow together.

11. Commit to spending more time with family

Including those elderly relative that you’re both guilty of neglecting!

Read the same book and enjoy discussing where you’re up to and what’s happening.

Your options are endless here, find a charity that is important to you both and see how much you can raise for it, or consider giving up a couple of hours together at the local soup kitchen.

A game of tennis at the local leisure centre can be so much fun!

Once a month, dedicate a day or evening to your partner where you will offer a massage, apply a face mask, rub their feet and anything else to help them wind down after a long week at work.

These are a huge favourite of mine:

16. Support each other through ditching a bad habit

Smoking, excessive drinking, too much coffee or having a few too many cream cakes, agree to get rid and help each other through it.

An adult should consume no more than 6 teaspoons of sugar a day, most people have that just in their daily tea/coffee. Gradually reduce it to feel generally healthier and more awake through the day.

A cluttered house is a cluttered mind. Stop clinging on to so many items from your past when you’ve just made such a huge commitment for your future. Be ruthless and get rid of all that junk you don’t really need.

Guess what? Women have periods. Guess what else? We don’t need you pointing it out to us if our moods are affected. The sooner you learn this, the more pleasant this marriage will be for everyone!

Great suggestions! Often we get too caught up in the activities and forget to spend quality time as a couple. Yes, put the phone down and reconnet with each other!

Absolutely right Jen, I made my husband read through and commit to several of them too as we’re both guilty of getting on with our own things and not making enough time for each other. Thank you for reading.

As always you write amazingly helpful articles. These are really great ideas. I try very hard when we’re on date nights to keep electronic use to a minimum. It’s nice to be in each others company with no outside distractions.

Such a fun list! Haha I enjoyed the last one although my husband has always been good about not making negative comments when I am having that time of the month. Sharing on my page

This is so true! My husband and I try our hardest to spend a little time together at some point in the week. It helps keep us together.
