On Jarrid's blog post titled, "I'm Dating Someone Even Thought I'm Married," he writes:
"I have a confession to make. Iâm dating someone even though Iâm married.
Sheâs an incredible girl. Sheâs 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 canât 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 canât 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 youâre married, doesnât mean your dating life should end.
I need to continue to date my wife even after I marry her. Pursuing my wife shouldnât stop just because we both said, âI do.â 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 shouldnât. Those butterflies you got on the first date shouldnât 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 doesnât want to pursue them whole-heartedly.
I encourage you to date your spouse, pursue them whole-heartedly, and understand that dating shouldnât end just because you said, âI do.â
