Top Ten Reasons to Date Your Wife Frequently

4.1.07

I was searching online about the top things that spouses fight about (money, work, children, in-laws etc. things like that). I have heard several before but I guess I was looking for some professionally published doccument to back it up, but in my search I found this article off of a Christian site. I thought some of my blogger friends might find this interesting.
The hecticness of work, community service projects, church activities and family often relegates a marriage relationship to the bottom of the list. At times, it is necessary to give attention to others. It is also important to keep something else in mind: Your spouse is the one most likely to be with you when you are teetering around with a cane! With that in mind, take time to date your spouse regularly. Here are a few reasons why.
1. Marriage Relationships are Dynamic. They are alive and always changing. They need to be fed and stimulated to stay alive.
~
2. There is Always Something New about Your Spouse. Dating is a good way to create a safe environment. Your spouse is more likely to let you know "what's new!"
~
3. Invest in the Future. Just like a savings account —it is easier to add a little to an existing account and watch it grow than to start a new one from scratch. That's because the interest grows exponentially over time.
~
4. You got Married Because You Dated! It only stands to reason that a good way to stay married is to keep dating.
~
5. Marriage can be Compared to a Set of Tires. During the course of driving, there is normal wear and tear. Dating serves to maintain alignment, balance and pressure. When done well, your marriage will last a lifetime.
~
6. Dating is an Opportunity to Focus. Day in and day out, distractions pull your attention away from your spouse. Dates help refocus on the person at the top of your priority list.
~
7. Remember the Good Times! A good date will often bring up pre-marriage memories. Recalling memories can generate anticipation for your next meeting.
~
8. Create Your Future. Dates lay the framework for future family gatherings. Great dates attract your spouse and family to want to spend time with you.
~
9. Laughter is the Best Medicine. Reader's Digest says so! It must be true. Laughing together makes it possible to hurt together when you must.
~
10. Remind Your Spouse, "I Love You!" There are many ways to say, "I love you!"
~
A date is one of the special ways to out honor your spouse. Try it this week! Set up 5 dates with your spouse for the next four weeks. Reserve them. Plan. Anticipate. Have fun!

Thanks for all the advice Connie. I sure hope that it won't turn into Pneumonia seems like that just sticks around for ages. I have had it several times growing up and I wouldn't want that again. Thanks for your prayers. They are much appreciated. Not a very nice way to start the new year but hopefully I can nip this in the butt before it gets any worse....if it can :-)

Glad you liked the post. I can't remember our last date but maybe after showing Ryan this, the month might start having new things in store :)
