I'd also like to comment on Step #4 from Yahoo's recent article on how to live happily ever after.
Step #4: Find a balance between time for two and time for you.
Yes, while it's important for you to do things as a couple without the kids, you also need time to yourself. You can't be joined at the hip all the time. For example, the Handy Husband is a car guy. I've gone to the drag races a couple times with him, but it's not my cup of tea. So most of the time, I tell him to go by himself and we're both much happier.
And on the other hand, I don't require him to sit through musicals and chick flicks.
