True marriage is a lifelong commitment. When you say your vows to your partner, you promise to be there for him or her in sickness or in health, until death do you part. However, there's no avoiding the inevitable—there will be some points during your marriage where things will hit a lull and the monotony of life swoops in to take over. Such dullness can cause a couple to drift apart and make that lifelong commitment seem so much more challenging to obey. What's a couple to do? Well, if ever you and your partner are going through a rough patch, you both need to find a way to light a spark in your relationship again. Sometimes, all you need is a change of pace to bring some vigor back into your marriage. Here are 5 unique dates that you can go on to accomplish just that:

#1 Glamping under the stars
Escape the stress of life by eloping to a "glampsite" in the middle of the woods. Glamping is essentially a glamorous version of camping where you can stay in fancy accommodations with luxe amenities. Some take the form of incredibly beautiful tents and tipis, while others are more igloo-like and sometimes even fitted with glass windows that allow you to stargaze at the night sky from the comfort of your own bed. The beauty of the natural environment combined with the comfort you get within the glamping facilities makes this a perfect option for a romantic date.
#2 A trip down memory lane
Perhaps one of the best ways to reinvigorate a fading marriage is by going back in time and reminding yourselves of how far you've come. Sometimes, you and your partner just need to remind each other of all the good times you've had. You could whip out a bunch of old photos and do some collaging together, but a better option might be to take a literal trip down memory lane. Take a road trip to the place where you first met. Walk over to the pizza shop where you guys shared your first meal together. Revisit the spot by the lake where you guys shared a memorable kiss at. Remind yourself why you love each other.
#3 City scavenger hunt
Take a break from watching the kids and spend a night exploring your area together. After you've arranged for a babysitter, search online for some sort of scavenger hunt you and your partner can do in your city. A scavenger hunt will test how well you guys can work together as a team to complete various tasks. You might be asked to take photos of every task, which make for great souvenirs. Buy a cheap polaroid camera and get cracking on a list!

#4 Drive-in Movie
Sometimes, all you need is the classics—the drive-in movie date has been around for years and years, and it always makes for a good time. In the age of the internet and Netflix, it's easy to stay home and binge-watch movies from your couch... But that gets old really fast. A drive-in movie is a cool twist to the Netflix-and-chill date—the giant screens, the nightly atmosphere and the cozy interior of your car make for an intimate and memorable night. Just remember to pack some pillows and blankets!
#5 Jewelry crafting workshop
Buying jewelry for each other is always appreciated, but there's something so much more personal about making jewelry from scratch. In most cities, there are craft workshops you can visit to make your own jewelry and other fun knickknacks. Not only will you and your partner learn something new, but you'll also be able to leave with souvenirs that symbolize your love for each other, whether they be personalized rings, charms, necklaces or bracelets. Symbolize your love by creating pieces that remind you and your partner of the unbreakable bond you share with each other.
