Dating a wife
We are born with five senses that can be powerful when used to focus on loving our wives. We just have to realize this and be intentional about it. I bet you a hundred bucks that if you follow the following game plan tonight you'll experience the beginnings of something fresh, new, and exciting in your marriage: Step 1: Call your wife right now and tell her you're taking her out to dinner tonight. Step 2: Make reservations, arrange babysitting if you have kids, and cancel any previous plans you had on the calendar for tonight.Although having a weekly date may seem like a no-brainer, many couples’ good intentions quickly get put off to some future time, when life is not so busy or there’s more money.Play a game from your childhood – croquet, badminton, hide and seek, miniature golf. Plan a “Favorites Night” around your favorite food, clothes, games, sports, etc. Some places have special music, lighting, and gimmicks. Many bookstores have cozy reading spots or a café connected with them. Try a theme date like one around “quarters.” Think of all the things you can do that use quarters like play a juke box, wash the car, take your picture together at a photo booth, play video games at an arcade. Pick a spending limit (like each) and see what crazy gift(s) you can put together for your sweetheart. Climb a tree together, catch lightning bugs, or feed some ducks. During the Fall, find a corn maze and wander through it. Each spouse could choose a favorite activity which you then combine into one evening, or the wife could propose her favorite activities for one date and the husband plans the next date with his favorites. Reflect on the sights you see and the lives of the people who are your fellow passengers. Wait for snow and give yourself permission to make snow angels or make a snowman. Go roller blading or revisit your childhood by visiting a roller skating rink. This is usually good for stirring up warm fuzzy feelings. Even without these, it can be a ball of fun if you don’t take it too seriously. Try creating a crazy or luxurious outfit for each other and wear it home.
This is one facet of your relationship where you can live that out.Pretty soon the kids are grown and couples find they’ve grown apart. It doesn’t have to always be on the same night, but it’s helpful to pencil in one night each week on your calendars; you can always change the night if a conflict comes up.
