One of my passions in life is promoting healthy marriages. I have been married for more than 20 years to the husband of my youth. We share our lives with our six children. We have had our ups and downs. We have had our losses, and we have had our blessings. One thing that I recommend to all husbands and wives is to make time for couple-time. In our fast-paced lifestyles, we often do not spend a lot of alone time with our spouses. Demands from our jobs, our children, our parents, and other commitments are all important, but they put a drain on our alone time as a couple.
Larry Pruett has written a book called Dream Dating. It is aimed toward husbands, but I offered to edit and review his book. I enjoyed his ideas and felt that it would make a difference in many marriages if the husband took the lead and planned a dream date week-end. From a wife’s perspective, I would be swept off my feet if my husband planned a week-end like this for me. I know a lot of husbands may struggle with creativity to plan a whole week-end away, but Larry does a great job helping a man plan a special week-end away for two.
This book gets more than a 5-star rating from me! I think a lot of marriages would be stronger if both the husband and the wife took initiative to plan special time together as a couple.
