The diagnosis came on the same day that the couple’s youngest son left for college.
Even those few couples who manage to fit in a date once in a while can feel like they are not getting enough "couple" time. Once they are out of the house, it's time to set your plan in motion.
You can fix a quiet dinner for two (make it your husband/wife's favorite meal).
Most married people will tell you that "dating" becomes harder to do with each child that comes along. You can call the grandparents and see if your children could spend the night there.Just chose a movie that you both can enjoy so the mood isn't killed for after the movie.Again see if a friend or family member you trust can watch the children for you. Find an empty field where you can go even if it gets dark (the park would work if you want to be done by dusk). For this one night, there are no kids, it's just the two of you.So after reliving the moment she knew everything was changing, the author goes on to introduce the love of her life: She explains how her father’s best friend (“Uncle” John) had known Amy and Jason their entire lives, but the two had never met.After college, Amy found herself back in Chicago when John decided that she and Jason would be a perfect match.
