Cupid’s Advice:

The old saying goes, “if you think your life is hectic now, wait until you have kids!” However, many of us don’t realize how true that statement is until after the first child is born. Now that you’re putting your child first, it can be hard to even fathom when you’ll have time to plan a date night. So, how can you keep the romance alive after having children? Cupid has some advice below.

1. Don’t lose touch: It’s surprising how important physical contact is for a person. Dr. Paul Zak states that hugging or kissing at least eight times a day helps with the production of oxytocin in the brain and body. This has great effects on the growth of trust, connection, and empathy.

2. Make any night special: Date night doesn’t have to be the only “special” night in your relationship. Make any night count! After the kids are asleep, cuddle up on the couch, watch a movie, or make some time to talk about your day.
