My husband and I have some close married friends who enjoy hosting game nights for couples. Sometimes it's girls versus boys, but no matter what we always spend the evening laughing, sharing stories, and focusing on strengthening and preserving our relationships with one another. Game night is a great way to get together with good company without spending a ton of money! But even more than that, spending time with our married friends -- watching them roll eyes, give signals to their spouses and all those things that couples do -- reminds us that we aren't the only ones who drive each other crazy sometimes. At your next holiday party this season, consider letting your kids watch a movie while the grown-ups play! Need some suggestions? Here are 7 fun board games to play with couples! - By Krishann Briscoe
