We can always think of excuses for why we shouldn’t date our spouse. But marriages that live with no sense of urgency in their passion and commitment to continuing to date one another or improve their relationship will eventually dry up.

Your spouse is with you. It is imperative that you recognize the weight and necessity of choosing to have naked conversations through this messy circumstance.

In an unexpected stroke of luck, my sister and her husband were able to join us at the last minute. It was the first time they had the chance to get away for more than one night in years.
