One thing we were determined to do was MAKE OUR MARRIAGE different from other [failed] marriages we knew about. We looked at and studied the behavior of those before us & realized early on, they stopped having fun!
They grew apart.
Because they put all their energy into maintaining the home and not into maintaining each other.
The way I was feeling about my then boyfriend, I knew I didn’t want to lose a connection to him.
At the time, we didn’t know what to call what we set out to implement in our relationship but we knew it was important that we talked openly & honestly daily & also have our fun time regularly.
It’s what we now know to be DATE NIGHT!
For 18 years, we have had regular date nights. The timing of date nights and the methods have changed over the years but we have been really consistent in investing in each other.
This is why we started National Date Night Week last year. NDNW is a way to bring awareness to the importance of dating your spouse and an opportunity for us to celebrate, support, and encourage couples to create and implement a regular date night schedule.
NDNW is always August 28-September 4.
[Tweet “#NationalDateNightWeek is to bring awareness to the importance of dating your spouse.”]
We are inviting you to participate in NDNW with the focus being on D.A.T.E.
I will share with you the meaning of D.A.T.E. over the course of the week.
Right now, I want you to get prepared for a fun and engaging week with us.
I will be on Periscope and Facebook Live every day starting Sunday, August 28 at 1pm CST sharing tips about planning, implementing and having fun with your spouse.
Join me all week but most importantly, plan to have a date with your spouse during NDNW.
I am so excited! We have some wonderful activities planned for the couples in Memphis. If you are not in Memphis, please let me know if you need help planning your date night.
Tweet me and let me know you plan to participate in #NationalDateNightWeek.
