Law and Order SVU
When I was pregnant with my daughter, I loved watching CSI for long periods in a day. I would even stay up until the wee hours of the morning just to finish episodes. I outgrew the show because on Season 8, the character of Gil Grissom left the show. It’s just doesn’t the same without him.
Anyway, now I am hooked with another crime drama, Law & Order SVU starring Christopher Meloni and Mariska Hargitay. After blogging, I would ask my husband to turn the TV on so that we can watch some old episodes. Sometimes we watch two to three episodes in one sitting that we would end up sleeping around 3am. LOL
This has gotta stop. Maybe I will stop when I reach Season 13 because the character of Meloni, Elliot Stabler, has left the show and Detective Olivia Benson (Hargitay) will also have lesser appearances.
For now, no movies for me because my source of entertainment is this series on s3xually-based offenses in New York City.
I dunno why I like these crime dramas. They just make me paranoid! LOL.

When you are already married, you adjust your lifestyle to accommodate your other half. That includes your daily routine, your household tasks, and of course, your choices for entertainment.
Since you are two different people, it is more likely than not that you have different ideas for something entertaining. It is like a ‘He said-She said’ issue. And the matter here is to compromise in order to make both parties happy. After all, what makes marriage fulfilling is the give and take relationship that couples share. If only one takes and takes and the other one just gives and gives, the relationship can get tiring and worse, abusive.
For example, the wife likes watching romantic comedy films, reading, baking, sewing, swimming, going to the spa, or going on a picnic in the park. Meanwhile, the husband may prefer watching sports shows, gardening, tinkering in the work shed, assembling toys, playing poker insider with friends, or shooting some baskets.
With that for sure, both parties can find something that they can do together. The wife, for instance, can arrange a poker party at home so that the husbands can play with their wives. Or the wives can just come over in order to support their husbands or they can have ‘girl talk’ while the men play. Or the husband can join his wife when she wants to watch a romantic-comedy movie. It is really just a matter of talking it out and doing something together. Well, yes, it entails some creativity, but you can always work on it.
Marriage is something that we should work on more than our careers or money. And since entertainment is one aspect that is usually fought over, then we should really make compromises on this one in order to lessen the arguments in the marriage. It will also forge a stronger bond between the husband and wife.

Notting Hill was the first movie we ever watched together.
and I have always loved the idea of a movie date. Our first date ever was in the movies in 1999. We watched Notting Hill starring Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant. We were not yet a couple then. We enjoyed it so much that we even got a copy of the movie sound track on CD!
The movie date was followed by another Julia Roberts-starrer, The Runaway Bride.
Now that we’re a couple, we could hardly find time as a family let alone time for a movie date. But as much as we can, we watch movies late at night either on DVD or on our computer, like around midnight, after our daughter Dindin is already asleep. That means, we sleep around 2 am. LOL
But we love those moments. We get a good laugh from romantic comedies and just find a relief from all the day’s hard work and stress. Then we are ready to face another day.
