A BOUQUET of roses, chocolates and candle lit dinners are what most people look forward to getting on Valentine's Day, but not Debbie and Stuart Read.

The couple has been married for eight years, run a business together and have four children.

Each year they look forward to the special day so they can enjoy spending quality time with one another.

"With all the children we do like to get out and do something for ourselves on Valentines Day,” Ms Read (nee Keating) said.

"We don't really buy each other big gifts or anything like that, it is more about spending time together like taking the time to go out to dinner.

"That's the main thing that I think keeps people together, keeps us together, is making time for you as a couple and not getting lost with your jobs and children and life in general.”

This year the couple, who love theatre and the arts, are looking forward to going to watch Kucom Theatre's production 'I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change'.
