When I was married, and for most of my friends who are parents, it can sometimes become ALL you talk about. You both share the interest, yes, but it becomes about the kids and nothing about you anymore. Over time, you can end up having a harder time relating to each other on non-kid issues.
I can see the allure in having date nights where you have to find something ELSE to talk about... you get to remember who you are again, and how you relate as a couple, rather than as co-parents.
