Keep dating your fiance while you plan your wedding
It may surprise you, but many couples stop dating each other as soon as they get engaged. You would think they would dating more, but in fact, many couples redirect all of their energy towards planning the wedding and forget to notice each other as they move towards their “big day.”
That is why I always use one of the premarital counseling sessions I do with couples and focus on leisure activities. I always give them a dating exercise as homework.
If you want to keep your relationship alive and growing, keep dating your fiance while you plan your wedding!
Dating is the best way to maintain your relationship during your engagement, wedding planning and throughout your marriage. Ask any married couple you know whether or not they have a healthy, happy, and fulfilling marriage. If they say yes, I bet you will find that they have some schedule for dating their mate.
My wife and I tied the knot in 1986. We have gone through difficult times like all couples. But both of us believe that the secret to our long and happy marriage has been a date night. We did this so regularly that when we did not take our date night, our children would ask us why we did not go out. As they got older, they would make us go out because they saw what it did for our marriage and parenting.
So do not forget to date your mate!
