I acknowledge that part of the joy of getting married is that one doesn’t have to date anymore. The horrid first dates, the hideous set ups by your loving aunt, spending two hours getting ready to go out to the meat market clubs and then only meeting guys named Guido who have more product in their hair than you do... ahh to be done with those days!
That being said, it’s time to start dating again. However, this time you will not be on your own… you should be 'dating' for couple friends.
Having a couple that you both enjoy spending time with makes going out and growing up together a lot more fun. It's not only enjoyable, there is one major benefit that true couple friends do to improve your relationship: having a someone else in the your lives with whom to have honest conversations about marriage.
We seem to talk about the challenges in our life in every area but marriage. If you have great couple friends that you can really talk to, you will find that many of the challenges in marriage are universal and it takes a tremendous burden off your marriage.
So, you can leave your aunt and dancing shoes out of this round of dating, but for the sake of your relationship, start dating again!
