When I polled you to find out what you'd like to hear about this month, more than a few of you mentioned wanting to hear about ways to increase love and strengthen the relationship between husband and wife. Well, our next blogger is prepared to do just that! She has written some very candid posts about husband/wife relations that you might want to explore after reading this.
In my former life and as a non-parent, I was a special ed teacher. Special ed teachers do a lot of things well, but one thing they do REALLY well is take data. For everything. And you know what? They see progress. For everything. ******* Early on in our relationship, Lincoln and I, like many others, said we would have a date every Friday. What we didn't say was, "This is what a date looks like to me ________" (For Lincoln, watching a movie together is a date. For me it is not.) Recently we sat down and made a plan of how "dating" was going to work for us. We made some"Date Rules" *Lincoln plans one Friday, I plan the next Friday. *The majority of our dates are 'home dates' due to the scarcity of babysitters/funds. *There will be no TV or Computer from the time the kids go to bed until the end of the date. (Because once one of us gets started 'just five more minutes' has turned into the whole evening.) *No doing the same thing more than once a month. ****** Data. What I am not suggesting is that you make a data chart to check off your dates. (Unless you want to, then by all means.) What I am suggesting is that instead of setting a lofty goal to date your spouse while doing nothing about it, you instead make a plan for how you will make it happen. What will it look like? Who will plan it? How often will you do it? You will be surprised by what a difference a small effort will make. Let me remind you, "Whenperformanceismeasured,performanceimproves.
