Dating … Don’t Ever Stop

I haven’t been married for very long, 4 years, but I already know for us, that dating is a must. Not other people, but each other. It is one of the best things we do for our marriage and family.

After cooking dinner, cleaning the house, working all day, both of us are exhausted. Sometimes we are almost zombies going through the daily checklist of life. I hate it, but it’s true, there just isn’t enough hours in the day.

But this is exactly why we stop, slow down & date each other. We don’t necesarily go out either. (But we do love a night out) We put Rowan in bed by 7:30, 8 at the latest for this reason. We need “us” time. That leaves us with 2 hours to ourselves, 2 hours to reconnect. We might just watch a movie together, play a game, (we are huge game board fans) have a few drinks & just talk, or work on a house project together, but at least something together & even better if we are both disconnected from our phones.

Our relationship needs to be a priority in order for it to work & dating my husband makes that easier. It makes us talk & be on the same page. It makes us want to have sex with each other & do it more frequently. It makes us laugh, but most of all it helps remind me why I fell in love with him. I just love being around him & hanging out. I never want to lose that or us. We will never stop dating. He is my forever date.

    I can so relate to this post! My husband and I have been married for 8 years, together for 14, and yes, dating each other is SO important! Our time together after our daughter goes to bed is precious. We too enjoy our “wine nights” and playing board games like Labyrinth (and more recently, Pandemic). A night out is awesome, but even a night in talking and reconnecting is wonderful! Thanks for writing this — I enjoyed reading it!
