You want to get lost in conversation with your spouse but how?
What do you do when you have small children, a limited budget, and need new date night topics as a married couple? Allow me (Kristen Milner) to introduce The Finer Things Club exclusively for married couples.
To make it work, you have to go all out with it. Commit. Make a plan. Stick with it.
Hebrews 10:24 and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love…
One Idea to spin limitless date night topics
How to Start The Finer Things Club:
- Choose a book
- Something you and your spouse will both enjoy
- Something you wouldn’t ordinarily read
- Preferably a fiction book because it opens up many date night topics for married couples
- Choose a date
- One night a week that you and your husband are both free
- Make a commitment to keep that night available for the next few months.
- Set the time
- Once you’ve chosen a night of the week you can commit to, set a time that works.
- For us, 8 pm worked great. This allowed us to put the kids to bed and gave us a few minutes to get things set up.
The finer details – date night ideas for busy couples
Now that you have a plan for what you will read and when you will connect let’s dig into the finer details. Searching for date night ideas for busy couples will list several ways to date at home. This idea falls in that category for sure. We are just spicing it up and helping you have a conversation instead of just watching TV.
How can you spice up this at-home date night?
- Dress in your finest clothes
- Put some chocolate or cheese out
- Use your finest China (or Target find, thank you very much).
- Drink tea (or water) from your finest drinkware.
Please note: most weeks I haven’t washed my hair in days and I don’t have on makeup when we do this. Also, our chocolate is usually a bar of Hershey’s from Dollar General. Just do your best for the season you are in! It will still be fun.
Read one chapter of your chosen book each week. We chose The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.How can you spice up this at-home date night?

Reading Sparks Conversation
Friends, this the most important part. As you eat the fine chocolate, sip from your fine China and discuss each of your perspectives from the week, you get lost in the book together.
The anticipation of what’s next.
You both forget about the stresses you faced at work earlier that week. The weight of uncertainty you’re facing in parenthood is not felt in that hour or so together.
The Finer Things Club is a place to get lost together each week. A place to refuel together. A safe place to love one another well, and be loved well back. A place to look forward to. Together. This one idea can create limitless date night topics for married couples in desperate need of a fresh spark.

Can this One idea Spark Limitless Date Night Topics for Married Couples
I can already hear your objections. No, this won’t work for every couple. If you or your spouse hate reading it would be hard. Maybe you love reading but he does not. Most books can be found on Audible (Try It Free and get 2 books)* or on a book on tape – even from your public library.
If either of you is a reader this will work. Books bring fresh ideas, imagination, and fun back into your life. This is just one idea to help create date night topics for married couples. No, it’s not perfect for everyone but it’s worth a try. And if it doesn’t work for you, find something else. Keep searching until you find a way to have fun again and connect.Can this One idea Spark Limitless Date Night Topics for Married Couples I can already hear your objections... Click To Tweet
