Vacationing with the kids can be fun for the whole family, but there are times when you should get away just with your spouse and reconnect without the kids. When many people become parents, they devote all of their free time to their kids. This is a loving and noble thing to do, but it can have serious repercussions for a marriage.

Love is a living thing, and like any living thing it needs to be nourished and cared for in order to thrive. One way to nourish your relationship is to periodically take time to be alone together. Taking a couples vacation is a great way to do this. With the hustle and bustle of everyday life it is hard to find time to just be alone together, but if you plan a vacation away from the kids, you can guarantee alone time.

No Kids Means No Crying

If you go to an adults only resort, you can guarantee there will not be any crying children around. If you have kids, you may have to deal with some of their not-so-great behavior on a daily basis. You shouldn't have to deal with it on vacation too. Besides, nothing can be more annoying than when someone else's kid is throwing a fit.

Adults only resorts also have a more grown-up feeling. They are often more sophisticated than hotels that cater to families, and they often offer a wider range of adult activities such as spa treatments, exercise classes and adult social events. Moreover, relaxing by the pool does not include enduring a spirited game of Marco Polo, and eating at an elegant restaurant is infinitely more enjoyable when young children are not present.
