I love my relationship with my husband. We always make time for one another. We make each other a priority and try and go on a date at least once a week.
That weekly date is our time. It’s an opportunity to connect, have adult conversations, and enjoy our time together without the distractions of children or work.
Date Night is Our Time
We talk about our wins during the week, personal goals, and couple goals—and we always talk about the dreams we want to create together. Every date we go on, every single week, I learn something new about him—yes, it’s true! Even after being together for ten years, there’s still a bit of mystery to my man! We ask each other questions, go deep, and speak candidly.
Because of the business I’m in, I know how important it is for couples to keep dating (each other) and keep the connection growing. It’s important to make time for one another, or else you risk growing apart. Mike and I are partners in everything. We’re together. We are a match for each other in every way.
But finding a partner is not just about meeting your match; it’s about finding someone you can share openly and freely with, knowing they have your back and are there to listen, support, and encourage you. There’s something about being with a partner who really, truly gets you, someone you don’t have to hide anything from, censor yourself, or worry about saying something wrong.
We love each other. But we also like each other. We enjoy each other’s company and treat our time together as a gift to be nurtured.
One day, our children will move out, and then it will just be the two of us again. We don’t want to be two strangers living in a house together. I’ve seen it too many times… couples losing their connection with each other. I will never let that happen!
The Greatest Gift of All is Us
My husband is my best friend. He’s who I share my secrets with, who I share my disappointment with, and who I want to be with when I feel down. He’s the one who will always be there for me when I need him. I trust that, together, we can resolve our conflicts. I genuinely believe that there is nothing in this world we can’t get through if we do it together.
The point is—it’s almost too easy to get wrapped up in life and let your relationship slide. But I promise you; there is nothing more important.
So, take my advice, please. Give yourself to your partner, always and completely. Do the same for them, and you’ll both reap the rewards.
