We’ve talked a lot about continuing to “date” your husband after you’re married and shared lots of fun date ideas (here, here, here, and here) but there’s something different about going on a date when you’re just getting to know someone and going on a date with your husband.
The other night Adam and I went out to dinner with two other couples. One has been married a few years, but the other couple has only been dating for a couple months. It was so sweet to see them smiling and looking at each other while they were talking, asking what the other was going to order and just generally being so genuinely happy to be together! I’m not saying that I wasn’t happy to see Adam after a day at work, but honestly, I was more interested in checking out the menu and chatting with my girlfriend than paying attention to him!
It’s so easy to get so wrapped up in my day, my needs, and my wants that I forget to give Adam the attention he deserves.
I guess I just want to encourage all you married ladies to cherish your husbands! Slow down and really listen when they’re talking about their day, kiss them when they come home, tell them that you love them, or just hold their hand.
