How Couples in Busy Families Can Get Alone Time

If you live in a home with your partner and kids, it is clear that you'll have plenty going on. From attending parents evenings and extra curricular activities for the kids to pets being noisy, bills to pay and chores to get done. It can be overwhelming, and leave little time romance. You'll find this is a situation many people end up in. You might both work on different schedules. Maybe you're on a career move and put in a lot of time at work and don't have time for each other. You could have a family member outside of your kids living with you and it makes the situation awkward. However, you still have to find time for each other, if you want the relationship to remain interesting and romantic. 

In This Together
Remember that both of you are in this together and if you want to stay together, you have to put in more effort for romance. You don't want to always be overworked and have no time to spend together. When you have kids, they depend on you solely, but one day, the kids will grow up and you find yourself alone with each other. Make plans and find ways to incorporate alone time with your partner. 

Plan Date Nights
Your life may seem chaotic now, but you can control what goes on in your home and around you. You should keep a calendar and carve out days when you plan a date with your partner so you both can reconnect, reminding you how it first began before the kids came on the scene. It is nice to dress up and feel confident that you still look good. It's nice to hear your partner tell you that you look good. That will start the romance for your date night and make you want to do it more often. Some couples think that because they have gotten married, it is the end of nurturing their relationship. In fact, it is just the beginning or you are going to drift apart before you even know it. If you do not nurture the relationship, soon, you will feel like just roommates and not a couple. You will find yourself exhausted after a long day and crash on the other side of the bed without even touching each other. 

Simplify Things
There are other things you can do to spend time together, but some of these things have to be planned in advance if you have kids. You can simplify things by putting on some music and dancing together in the living room while the kids watch cartoons. You may hear some delightful giggles coming from them or that embarrassing groan from one of them, but despite that, most kids love to see their parents show affection. The key is to find any opportunity you can to be close to each other. 

Schedule Time
Every couple deserves to have alone time, if they want to remain connected, emotionally, mentally, and physically, even if you can carve out small increments of time. While it is nice to be spontaneous, when you have children, it becomes a challenge where you have to schedule specific time periods to be together. Try to capture those memories where you went on a date and ended up in bed or watching a good basketball game on the television, cuddled up with each other. Arrange for someone to pick up the kids from school and feed them. Instead of going home, arrange to meet each other at a restaurant and bar to eat and have drinks.

While it can be quite challenging to maintain a steady and nurturing relationship after you have kids, there are ways you can go around them by having alone time with each other. You just have to be a little on the creative side and be spontaneous when you can, but most of all, plan your little get together and explore each other intimately.
