Does a planned date night come with the expectation of sex?
Is there an expectation or even an outright agreement that a date night leads to or involves sex?
What percentage of date nights has sex as a component?
No, I don’t think at all. Truthfully, if it included a nice dinner, I probably would be too full and most likely NOT want to when we arrived home. Now if we truly connected in a deeply emotionally way, DW is probably gonna want to make love…and who am I to say no and not honor her request. 😀
Now if that meal was a lunch on a day off together (usually Fridays) and we had some deep conversations, I’d be more likely to expect and desire it later. In all honesty though, we probably made love that morning so an evening adventure would be a bonus…and, if it’s been a busy week and we hadn’t made love much, a good possibility.
Being married comes with an expectation of sex! Every other day comes with an expectation of sex. Date night? Absolutely The norm is coming together so the evil one will not tempt you. Date night is nice bonus and blessing, but not a requirement!! Sex is.
I used to expect. Learned the hard way that it was just planning frustration. So I quit expecting it, and started getting more of it….imagine that!
Put the shoe on the other foot – You would be better suited not to set it up to where a date night is required or expected before sex. The two should really be mutually exclusive. Have a good date, have good sex, or have one with or without the other. But if a couple mutually wants to make a regular thing of date night that includes sex, then I see nothing wrong with it, as lone as that’s not the only time sex happens.
