Once you have a handful of years of marriage under your belt, date nights start looking a little different and happening with less frequency. Changes may include different attire (yoga pants), different venues (the couch) and different topics of conversation (the Costco shopping list).
Below, we’ve gathered 17 funny tweets that sum up the reality of date night as a husband or wife.
