I have a confession to make. I’m dating someone even though I’m married.
She’s an incredible girl. She’s beautiful, smart, cunning, strong, and has an immensely strong faith in God. I love to take her out to dinner, movies, local shows, and always tell her how beautiful she is. I can’t remember the last time I was mad at her for longer than five minutes, and her smile always seemed to brighten up my day no matter the circumstances.
Sometimes she would visit me at work unannounced, make me an incredible lunch, or even surprise me with something she baked. I can’t believe how lucky I am to be dating someone even though I am married. I encourage you to try it and see what it can do for your life.
Oh! Did I mention the woman I am dating is my wife? What did you expect?
I need to continue to date my wife even after I marry her. Pursuing my wife shouldn’t stop just because we both said, “I do.” Way too many times I see relationships stop growing because people stop taking the initiative to pursue one another.
Dating is a time when you get to learn about someone in a special and unique way. Why would you want that to ever stop? It shouldn’t. Those butterflies you got on the first date shouldn’t stop just because the years have passed. Wake up each day and pursue your spouse as if you are still on your first few dates. You will see a drastic change for the better in your relationship.
When it comes to any relationship, communication and the action of constant pursuit are key. Nobody wants to be with someone who doesn’t want to pursue them wholeheartedly.
I encourage you to date your spouse, pursue them wholeheartedly, and understand that dating shouldn’t end just because you said, “I do.”
