Whether it’s a quiet dinner for two, or going hiking and enjoying the outdoors at a park, married coles on campus said there are many different things to do in Rexburg that are cheap, yet fun.
According to an article on www.jefftalks.com, it is important to spend time with one’s spouse, even if life gets too busy. Making time to have dates will strengthen a marriage.
Jimmy Bridges, a junior majoring in marriage and family studies, said he and his wife go to orchestra performances on campus or simply have dinner at their house while enjoying each other’s company.
“Just recently, my wife cooked our dinner in a pumpkin and we went to Beaver Dick to eat it,” Bridges said.
Crystal Kent, a senior studying art, said she likes spending time that doesn’t involve academics with her husband.
“We are alone together all the time, but there is something different when you can go do something stress-free and fun as a married cole,” Kent said. “It helps your relationship when you have fun together.”
Kent said she and her husband like to take photos and be creative when doing different activities.
For married students that love to be in a more natural setting, Bryce Mortensen, a senior studying health science, said he and his wife like to look for new places out in the open or pack a picnic and go to the park.
“We love being outdoors, so my wife and I try to find new places we can go hiking or camping in,” Mortensen said. “Anything to get us out of the house.”
Lindsay Likes, a senior studying exercise physiology, said that her favorite thing about being married is that most of their dates are relaxed and she gets to be with her husband.
“One time, we went on a scavenger hunt, and I gave my husband clues on where to go for places that were close since we didn’t have a car,” Likes said.
In addition, Likes said their main dates are making dinner together, building forts or having a campout in the living room.
