When was the last time you went on a date with your wife?
Did your conversation include talking about the kids, the bills or some other type of responsible discussion?
If so, then there’s a good chance you’ve lost the romance in what’s supposed to be the most romantic relationship in your life. I’ve never been overly romantic, but compared to how I was when I was dating my wonderful wife, I’ve slipped even further away from my romantic side.
Do I still love my wife? Of course. Do I sill find her sexy, interesting and attractive? Indeed I do.
But if I don’t take the time to be romantic with her, there’s a chance the connection we have will wither away. In other words, I can’t let stress, exhaustion, work, caring for my kids, my speaking career, mowing the lawn and all the other stuff in my life get in the way of keeping the romance alive in my marriage.
I have a friend who recently got divorced. Last time I saw her, she told me that the marriage ended because her and her husband had simply become friends. There was no fire left, no spark. If we don’t procure the romance in our marriage it might just disappear forever.
It’s time to begin the romance challenge. First up, making a date, and learning how to actually treat it like a date.
Who’s with me?
And remember, you are not alone …
