It shouldnât come as a shock that marriage is more than just kids and bills and clean houses and texts of âCan you wash my shorts,â and âWhatâs for dinner?â Every once and a while, you have to unplug and reconnect. I finished not one book this summer. I didnât finish any new seasons of shows. I purposely brought nothing of entertainment on our long drives to our anniversary trip nor the beach. Instead, after eight years of marriage and over ten years together, I talked to this man, about everything and anything. I found out things I never knew, not only about him but myself. And it was amazing because we werenât just married: we were actively dating each other, on purpose. So do me a favor ( and it only works if you commit).
When you âdate,â your spouse, date your spouse.Spend too much money. Spilt your meals. Ask really stupid and fun questions. Laugh at yourself. Laugh at your spouse. Create ridiculous jokes. Do put down your phone. Talk about more than your kids. Talk about your kids. Compliment each other. Then do it again. Listen when the other ânerds,â out. Be vulnerable. Be honest. Respect each otherâs boundaries. Listen when those boundaries feel crossed. Bring coffee. Be a little selfish with your relationship and its time. Choose to love each other. Choose to respect each other. Choose to honor each other with your friendships. Be each otherâs best friend. And for Godâs sake, when it can be better, when you can do better for each other and with each other, fight, for him or her, with him or her, until you get back to truly loving each other. Hereâs to my best friend. Thanks for always loving me and supporting me. â¤ï¸ð #dateyourspouse #pursueyourspouse
