From This Day Forward

One of the most important things you must do to have a long and healthy marriage is to simply have fun. Even though you will endure tough times as a couple, you should always strive to find ways you can have fun and keep the romance as strong as it was the day you walked down the aisle. This week you will read about and discuss the importance of having fun and the types of fun every couple can enjoy.

Without fun and intimacy marriage becomes a business relationship. It's simply two people existing in the same house with two separate lives. No one falls in love having a bad time or being bored. Fun is not a luxury in marriage. If you don't make time for fun, you may not have a marriage to make time for.

Talk: What things are keeping you from having fun? Discuss ways you both can remove these barriers.

Pray: Ask God to help you remove the things that are keeping you and your spouse from having fun together.

Do: Go on a date night tonight or work together to plan a date night for one night this week. Make a commitment to stick to the plan!
