Now to be fair that isn’t really the title for this post but did it catch your eye?
I recently watched “Men. Women and Children” which is a film about relationships in the modern era where social media and technology has taken over lives. There are a number of stories going on in this film but the one that struck a chord with me was the Adam Sandler and Rosemarie DeWitt one. They portray a married couple with teenage children who have become stuck in a rut that they seek satisfaction from outsiders. He starts off by watching porn and ends up with an “escort” whilst she joins the Ashley Madison dating site (famous for being a site to facilitate affairs) and has an affair. He finds out and confronts her but rather than judge he informs her that he’s also been misbehaving. Their marriage gets back on track. *
I just found it so sad that it got to that stage but I can see how easily it could go that way.
(* this was one of those weird films where it comments on the modern era and makes you think and question certain things – worth a watch!)
As you know, hubby and I have been married for 3 years this year and yes of course we still love each other as much as we ever did, but occasionally I feel like we’re not as lovey dovey as we used to be. Is this because we’ve come stuck into a routine?
I feel like we never kiss each other good bye in the morning because one of us is dashing off to work or to drop off Little Miss at childcare. We’re so tried these days between looking after the two of them that we hardly cuddle. At the moment we haven’t got time to snuggle on the sofa because one of us is holding the baby.
I know it’s a phase and it will pass but I don’t want to leave it so we feel disconnected from each other. With this in mind, I’m hoping to persuade hubby’s parents to look after the little ones so we can have a date night. Because we’re so tired we’ve decided to have a Date Night Movie Night instead!
So, any suggestions as to what we should watch?
