Date night is incredibly important, especially for couples who have been together for more than two years. As time wears on and lives get more complicated and busier, it gets harder and harder to keep a relationship "fresh" and "exciting." And date night is a great way to keep building on that relationship.
I'm actually taking my wife out tonight because with sickness, podcasting, day jobs, and trying to get writing stuff done, we haven't spent much quality time together. We're not going to do anything super fancy. We're just going to head downtown and eat at one of our favorite (low-moderately priced) restaurants. Then we may go to a local beer bar we enjoy, or we may hop over to the arcade/bar that's for 21+ customers only.
There are many other things we could try to do, too, and we're both excited to see what the evening holds. It's important, and I'm overjoyed at the idea of doing this on a regular, or even infrequent basis, for the rest of my life.
Anyway, that's what's on my mind. Check out the Beyond the Trope Blog and see what our halfling-cyborg had to say about community.
