“Date Night” Do you ever have them?
ARE YOU BEING CONSUMED?
Situations can and will have your life in a busy world wind from school, work, bills, businesses, kids, church, and just plain ole life itself! But to my fellow marriedtains ( Excuse me, I just made that word up) Funny right? Ok anyways!
- Take some time out for just you and your spouse. Rekindle the fire that you two once had,
- Get those love bug sparks flying again.
- Get back to why you two fell in love.
- Don’t let life consume you and make you so busy with everything around you that you have left out your husband or wife!
When you let everything else consume you and you don’t take the time out to spend with your spouse ( Get your mind out the gutter! I am excluding sex here ) I’m also not talking about dinner either. Lets pause for a second: Who actually talks at the dinner table anymore? Besides the same old same old “how was your day?” Or telling one of the kids to sit down and eat their food. Some people don’t even sit at the table for dinner anyway. (If you don’t make an effort to do it)
“QT” IS THE KEY:
But what I am talking about is “quality time” with just you and him/her. No kids! One thing that I know for sure is that you start growing apart when you don”t spend time together. You get so comfortable with it that you let your guard down which invites temptation to come in.
Think about it for a moment. If you and your spouse use to have date night, laugh, talk, and spent a good amount of quality time together, and now you dont. You had kids, got your careers flowing and you don’t pay him/her no attention (besides everyday rituals) haven’t had a date night in a year!!! What do you think could possibly happen? When a man/woman shows them some attention , that’s gonna get their mojo working. No I’m not saying your spouse will cheat but what I am saying is that women love attention from their husbands and vice versa. Speaking from experience it makes us feel loved, wanted, pretty , and very appreciated! So if another man/woman shows them some genuine attention don’t get upset. Because that’s one of your duties as a husband/wife!
Take some time out each month and spend some QT with your husband/wife . Don’t let life separate you so much that its hard to rekindle the fire. Let your spouse know that you love them. Hey if you bought candy, cards, flowers etc. all the time you were dating why stop when you get married? Keep it going! Don’t start something just to get them but keep it going to keep them! Remember that it doesn’t have to be a special occasion or holiday but just because. Just to show your love and your appreciation. So stop playing around and making excuses, take time out for your spouse and schedule a date night!
Talk To You Soon,
