It can be hard for any couple to adjust their lifestyle after years of focusing on their children and suddenly that focus in their life is gone. The dates go from Celebrating the Empty Nest to Becoming a Couple Again, Rediscovering "Intimate Talk", Clearing the Air, Rocking the Roles, Discovering the Second Spring of Love, Loving Your Family Tree, Growing Together Spiritually, Investing In Your Future, and Feathering Your Empty Nest with Fun.
