40 Things for Husbands and Wives to Do Together Besides Watch TV

Guys- sometimes couples get bored. It happens. Even when you’re totally and completely in love. Probably more often when you’re thinking too much about how you don’t talk and laugh and play as much as you used to when you were dating. Again, it happens! What can we do about it? As they say, “Be the change!” Basically, it’s totally ok if it’s up to you to initiate a little fun. Chances are, your partner will be more than willing to comply to at least one of the ideas below.
