Each season has its own unique opportunities for romantic moments. Each season also has its own personality that can be reflected in your marriage. Take the time to appreciate each season together, with these suggestions in mind:
Spring is a time of thawing, growth, and new beginnings. Celebrate the spirit of Spring by letting go of old hang-ups and beginning anew. Celebrate how you’ve grown together in the past year, and celebrate your individual growth as well. Spend this time trying new things together, investing in the further growth of your relationship, and re-igniting your romance. (Spring is the most romantic of all the seasons, you know.)
Things to do in Spring: Dance in the rain, search for the end of a rainbow, plant a garden
When you think of Summer, you think of relaxing, having fun, and getting away. Maybe you don’t have the chance to do long vacations with your spouse, but do take the time to get away together. Schedule time together to either relax, have fun, or escape. Don’t make these the usual date nights. Make them exotic, make them big, make them refreshing.
Things to do in Summer: Midnight stargazing, go water skiing, create an island oasis indoors
Autumn brings to mind images of home, community, and lively festivities. Gather with other couples during this season for double dates, couples’ parties, or festivals. Create a community to support one another in your relationships. Autumn also involves a lot of cooking and celebrating, so spend the season doing those things together.

It may seem cold on the outside, but Winter is all about warmth on the inside. Spend the season making your home a cozier place to dwell, and dwell there often. Make good use of the short days and long evenings, with the use of lots of candlelight and snuggling. Get creative with indoor dates, or explore the warm memories of your childhood by playing in the snow. Appreciate the warmth your spouse brings you and celebrate it.
