Is It Time for A Couples-Only Vacation?
Once you have the kiddie arrangements ironed out, choose a romantic destination. Maybe it's a Caribbean cruise or a weekend getaway to the city. Pick a destination that's new and exciting to both of you. While some couples may want to plan out every detail of their trip, others may opt to play it by ear. Before you ever leave your house, you should discuss what you both want out of your vacation. For example, if your goal is to simply lounge around the hotel for a few days, it won't come as a shock to your partner when you don't want to go sightseeing, snorkeling or parasailing. Make sure that you share the same agenda so there are no surprises. If a costly trip isn't in your budget, consider a staycation. That's where you get away from it all without ever leaving your zip code. Book an affordable room at a local hotel and stay holed up for the weekend. Spend the mornings in bed watching a good movie. Or maybe hit the beach or shops for the day. Remember, you can bond with your partner just about anywhere. All it takes is a little planning.
