February is the season for love. Young men are emptying their wallets on extravagant gifts and over-the-top gestures in attempts to romance their companion. Then women shows off the gifts or proof of the gesture to their friends in an attempt to gain social superiority. It’s a lovely season!
One gift that has become increasingly popular over the years for young couples are the couple’s coupons, where you will see cute little offerings like, “Free Date Night on Me” and “Good for One Strip Tease.” And these are great for couples in their youth.
But romance looks different for the not-so-newlywed couple. Some would say romance dies after a while and you’re left with familiarity and fear of the world outside of your spouse.
But I am here today to tell you true romance never dies, it evolves. Instead of the surprise date night, you’re happier with the surprise “I’m already in my PJs at 4pm” and instead of the free strip tease, you’ll settle for him not burping the entire alphabet.
That is why I have created 10 coupons for older couples. Those true couples who know what it takes to stand the test of time, and if your spouse offers you these coupons and actually allows you to redeem them, you know the romance is truly alive in your relationship.
So if you’re anything like me and you forgot to get your spouse an actual Valentine’s day present, here are 10 Couple’s Coupons for the Not-So-Newlywed.
1.The Couple’s Curfew Does your wife constantly go to bed hours before you, at a completely unreasonable time of 7:30?

Then give your wife the gift of the Couple’s Curfew! Good for one night of a shared bedtime! She can sleep soundly while you lie awake, counting the ceiling tiles!
2. The Call Out Do you have dinner plans with your annoying friends that your wife not-so-secretly hates?
