Dating your spouse

If I could do one thing differently over the past 23 years of my marriage, it would be to have a sense of fun around regular, affordable date nights.Planning a date says to your spouse, “You matter to me and our relationship is worth effort.”Successful marriages require constant and continuous effort and care.After all, it’s not like you don’t see them every day.But, as my pastor reminded us in our counseling session, it’s just as important now to date your spouse as it was when everything was fresh and new.This is an awesome idea that more married couples should embrace and this article will explain why and what you can do.Dating your husband or dating your wife is something that can be extremely fun for a number of reasons, but this first one is one I really want to go into first.

Take the time each month to nurture your marriage by taking the lead and planning a date for you and your spouse.

With dating your spouse, there is no pressure because you two are already married.

There's no pressure to worry if he/she likes you, what interests they have, how you can show your love to them because the knot has already been tied.

There’s a career to tend to, friends you don’t want to lose, and interests you both have that are separate from each other.

And then there are kids who enter the picture and have this tendency to make everything about them. As life adds many chapters to your already busy life, it’s so easy to take your spouse for granted.
