The average parent hasn’t been on a romantic date in over 3 years
Sad, but true, the average parent finds it really tough to set aside date nights with their partners because of all the time consumed by kids. It's not easy. You have to find the time, find a babysitter and then go out trying NOT to worry about the kids at home while you're gone. From The New York Post, "A poll of parents of school-aged children (5-18) found three in 10 don’t even remember the last romantic date they went on.
But the large majority say it’s something they want to change, as 81 percent say that they need to step things up and have more frequent date nights."
