HRT: Date Night

When was your last date night?
When was the last time you went on a date? What was it? Was it a movie? Dinner? Did it end with a long walk along the river or beach? Did you take your wife out because you wanted to or because she nagged enough?

There needs to be an element of romance to your relationship. Hence why I am continuing my series on the Husband Romance Toolkit. I want to take some time to talk about the importance of a date night and then give you some tips that have worked for my wife and I.

I Feel Pretty

I’m a gleek. I admit it. I LOVE that show. It’s awesome because the music is incredible. I really enjoy watching that show.

One reason I like Glee is because it deals with issues that are really important and hit close to home, especially for most young people today. In an episode during the second season called Born This Way, one of the main characters (Rachel) was tempted to get a nose job. She wanted to have a face like the head Cheerleader named Quinn. At one point in the show, they sing a song called I feel Pretty/Unpretty. It’s a great mash-up of Unpretty by TLC and I Feel Pretty from West Side Story. It blew my mind the first time I heard it.

What is the goal of marriage?

What is the goal of your marriage?
When I got married, I was SO happy. It’s at the top of my list as the greatest day of my life (so far). Everyone I talked to said that our marriage had potential to be one of the greatest the world had ever seen. It was a wonderful time for the both of us.

Fast forward four years and I’m starting to figure out just how much work marriage can be. It really did take me that long to figure it out.

Have an affair with your wife

This is one of the bigger ideas in the Husband Romance Toolkit series.

Romance your wife like you're having an affair

A few months ago my wife and I were living in two separate cities. We weren’t separated or anything like that. I was going to school in Portland and she was trying desperately to get down there to start living with me again. During that time, we saw each other a few times a month, other times we saw each other once in six weeks. It was no fun.

A bad start to any day

This is what I feel like most mornings at work

My day has lately been starting the same way every day. Alarm goes off at 5:18 every Monday-Friday and I end up staying in bed until 6. Get up, brush teeth, and rush out the door by 6:15. No breakfast, no quiet time; I barely give myself enough time to say have a good day to my wife. Once I get to work, I’m sluggish and it takes me quite awhile to get into the swing of things. Sometimes it can take me until lunch before I feel fully awake and coherent and by that point I’ve only got a few hours left in my day.
