We just celebrated our tenth anniversary. Ten years! Holy moly! I don’t know what makes me feel older–turning thirty, having three kids, or being married for ten years. Honestly, it might be the ten years of marriage. I mean, I thought we had accomplished something great after just one year, but TEN YEARS?! That’s legit!
The past ten years have been hard but good. We went from doe-eyed “babies” to genuine adults who have struggled with, fought for, prayed through, and cried over our relationship.
One of the ways we fight for our marriage is through our commitment to date nights. There are weeks when date night is the only time we get to have serious adult conversation, and I need adult conversation. And I do mean “need”–quality conversation is my love language.
But there are times when it’s impossible to get out for a date night, or we simply need some new ideas to move our conversation from “Did you take out the trash?” to something more meaningful. And this is where these date night questions come in handy.
Some are silly. Some are serious. I hope they all lead to great conversation for you and your spouse/date. If you’d like a printable version, you can print this list of date night questions and conversation starters HERE.
(Confession: you don’t have to be married to use these questions. NO ONE is searching the interweb for “date night questions.” But a few people are looking for “questions for married couples.” So. Yeah. That’s the story behind the title.)

Now that we have three kids and our foster tot has to have state-approved babysitters, there are times when we have a date night at home. I know some couples feed their kids earlier in the evening and then have a dinner date after the kids are in bed. In which case, a pizza you don’t have to prepare or order is a great and easy option.
DIGIORNO claims that the new pizzeria!™ thin pizzas may be the most delicious frozen pizzas yet, and I have to agree. Our favorite was the Supreme Speciale (with caramelized onions, red & green peppers, premium pepperoni, Italian sausage). Because we’re not ashamed of our love of meat.
But don’t just take my word for it! DIGIORNO is so confident you’ll agree that new pizzeria!™ thin is delicious, that the company is offering a “Love It Or It’s Free Guaranteed” refund. If for some reason you try the new pizzeria!™ thin and don’t like it, you can visit DIGIORNO.com for more information on how to receive a refund.
Love it or it’s free–the pizza, that is. I’m no longer talking about marriage. 😉
