Lookie here! I am a HUGE fan of date night!!!
Hubby and I started date night in Sept 2013 and I’m proud to say we have not missed a month to date. Going strong 5 years & 4 months.
Is it always easy?? Nah.
There are times when we have something scheduled but hey, we didn’t schedule the argument we had the night before or the day of.
MARRIED. LIFE. HAPPENS.
I can be completely honest because we’re all friends here, right? I have left the house for date day totally not speaking to my husband. True story.
TAKE MY WORDS AND RUN WITH IT!!! Unless you are 100% checking out then you better be prepared to 100% work through it/get over it.
It’s tough, Man. It’s tough. If you planned it, follow through with it. Get up and go. Your marriage depends on it. I promise you…..PINKY SWEAR…….I have gotten in to the truck with my hubby on date day totally hating his guts. #truestory
If you have lost 99% hope in your marriage……remember there is still hope.
*Get back in the car
*I know you don’t want to kiss him but at least let him kiss you on the cheek. It DOES make a difference.
*If you refuse your monthly date day, YOU will regret it. YOU will regret it.
*Listen, those couple of hours out doesn’t mean you have forgiven everything or that you won’t bring it up again or that you’re not still hurt. Your are. It all needs to be addressed. Find peace for the next 2 hours.
*G0! If you’re like me, you keep a record of each date day. I know where we have gone each month since 2013. Do you really want there to be a blank card in the memory pile?? And to relive that fight??
Do something. Make a memory. And don’t make it a bad memory.
