I Still Date my Wife

My wife and I have been married 26 years, but I still date her.

That sounds super weird! Actually, we went on a date just last night. It was to a simple pizza place, but we had a wonderful time together. Dating my wife doesn’t mean:

  • We’re deciding if we’re right for one another
  • We’re playing the field and seeing other people

What does it mean?

It means we’re intentional about spending quality time together. We try to go on a date once a week, if possible.

  • Sometimes we go see a movie
  • Sometimes we just go for a scenic drive
  • Usually, we go out to eat

We need this because:

  • Life is super hectic
  • We have three children living at home
  • Both our jobs are stressful and demanding
  • There are days we barely see one another

Going on these “dates”

  • Helps us get away from the chaos for a moment
  • Gives us time to talk about life
  • Teaches our children what a healthy marriage looks like
  • Allows my wife and I to still have fun together
  • Keeps our marriage strong and vibrant, even after 26 years

Are you Married? Take your spouse out on a date. Make is a regular practice!

Proverbs 18:22, “He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord.”
