Need some Date Night ideas for you and your significant other to spend quality time together? Healing First Counseling comprised a list to fit everyone’s budget. While we tried to stay local, many of these options can be found all over our wonderful state. According to The Marriage Project research, “couples who devote time specifically to one another at least once a week are markedly more likely to enjoy high-quality relationships and lower divorce rates, compared to couples who do not devote much couple time to one another”. So what are you waiting for? No excuses!
