Are you interested in more fun times with your spouse?
- Improving your communication?
- Deepening your intimacy?
- Strengthening your commitment?
- Lessening your stress?
Regularly dating your spouse can help with each and every one of these things. It can also help stir up more of those “falling in love” feelings you had when you were newly married.
I have put together a very exciting four week Facebook event to help strengthen marriages and have fun in the process!
AND YOU ARE INVITED!
As we approach the end of summer let me offer you ten reasons why you should join the End of Summer Date Your Mate Challenge:
1. Invest in your marriage
There are proven benefits to dating your spouse. Don’t let the fact that it is fun fool you. Dating your spouse is a valuable investment in your marriage. There are at least five scientifically supported benefits to continuing to date your spouse (which you will see when you click the “LEARN MORE” button below).
2. Your kids are watching
Parents invest a lot into their kids preparing for the back to school season. Let your kids also see you investing in your marriage. Doing the date your mate challenge will show your kids that your marriage relationship matters. They need to see this.
3. More time with your spouse
I have heard it said that children spell love T-I-M-E. So it is with any relationship that is growing. This is a chance for you to prioritize more time with your spouse.
4. Meet new couples
The Date Your Mate Challenge is a virtual Facebook event with other couples who are doing the same thing. You can expand your relational network with other couples who are also making their marriages a priority.
5. Get more date ideas
Each week you will see other couples posting about what they did for a date. There will be lots of new and creative date ideas shared each week. There is nothing like seeing real dates by real couples to inspire you in your own date planning.
6. Accountability and positive peer pressure
You know it is good to date your spouse. How easy is it to neglect such an important thing? VERY EASY. Not so when you join the Date Your Mate Challenge. You will “have to” date your spouse. The Date Your Mate Challenge harnesses the power of positive peer pressure to help you take your relationship to a higher level.
7. Have more fun with your spouse
Going on dates is fun. Doing new things together is fun. Sharing your date experiences with others is fun. Seeing other coupes having fun is also fun! So much fun to be had here!
8. It is free to join
Prizes have been made available through the generosity of others. There may be the opportunity to “pay it forward” at the end of the Challenge for those who wish but there is NO COST for you to join!
9. You could win prizes
Go on a date each week for four weeks and you could win one of three prizes each week and one grand prize at the end. Plus other surprise prizes sprinkled in for good measure.
10. Build positive momentum in your relationship
Four dates in four weeks. Not too much. Not too little. You will be part of a larger group all pulling in the same direction. Dating your spouse will no longer be like swimming upstream. You will gain positive momentum in your relationship with the other couples cheering you on.
