On Jarrid's blog post titled, 'I'm Dating Someone Even Though I'm Married' he writes:

'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 seems to brighten up my day no matter the circumstances.

Sometimes she will visit me at work unannounced, make me an incredible lunch, or even surprise me with something she personally 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?

Just because you're married, doesn't mean your dating life should end.

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 do I see relationships stop growing because people stop taking the initiative to pursue one another.

Dating is a time where 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 is key. Nobody wants to be with someone who doesn't want to pursue them whole-heartedly.

I encourage you to date your spouse, pursue them whole-heartedly, and understand that dating shouldn't end just because you said, 'I do.'

I swear by this philosophy. Never stop being your husbands girlfriend and vice versa. Honestly this is part of why we have such a strong marriage I think. Of course we love each other and our family but we don't let ourselves forget why and how we fell in love in the first place.

I need to work on this more. I need to pursue him. We went out to dinner and barely said 2 words to each other. next time we go out I was thinking about pretending it is our first date again.

I couldn't imagine not speaking to one another

not gonna lie, kinda jealous. my dh's idea of 'dating' typically involves grabbing my boobs and/or thrusting his pelvis onto me. he's such a romancer!
