“The easiest part of marriage is falling in love and walking down the aisle. The most difficult part of marriage is 10 years later when the problems have ensued and issues have come about and you still find love. Marriage is not about the beginning, marriage is about the process and still being able to love through all things.” ~Unknown Author
One of the biggest components to being a hot wife is loving your husband. And one of the easiest ways to keep falling in love with him over and over again?
Dating him, of course.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. Life is busy. We’ve got kids (dogs, fish, etc.). We already know each other–it’s cheaper to eat in.
Stop making excuses. Seriously. The fact is that it’s WAY too easy to get all caught up in the day to day of it all, but when all is said and done, your husband is your life partner.
Your kids are going to grow up and move out. Your career will eventually slow down. Your friends have their own lives and as much as you love them, when it comes down to it, your husband is your PARTNER.
You can choose to enjoy your time with him and celebrate your love while holding on to your romantic bond, or you can get bored with each other and start acting more like roommates.
(If you prefer acting like roomies, you’re in the wrong place–you might as well go read something else. But if you want romance, love and a real relationship with your life partner? This one’s for you–keep going!)
Because I know how hard it can be to remember what a date even feels like, I’ve compiled this one-page “Date Your Husband: A Hot Wife’s Pre-Date Checklist.” You can download it and print it out to keep you on-track while you’re preparing to date your husband–or just save it to your phone and use it that way. Either way, from my heart to yours, please enjoy this free download.
