Inside the Lesson
In this episode, David and Claudia Arp—founders of Marriage Alive and authors of 10 Great Dates Connecting Faith, Love and Marriage and $10 Great Dates—explore the concept of dating your spouse and the reasons why it could be the best thing you ever do for your marriage. “Fun in marriage is serious business,” and is a foolproof way to protect your marriage against divorce. The key to a great date with your spouse is to remember these three things: (1) Talk only about each other and your relationship, (2) do something you both love, and (3) be positive and focused on the future. According to David and Claudia Arp, the biggest skill every couple should work on is communication. Dating your spouse is not just for married couples who live together every day but for military couples, as well. They break down how to date your spouse during a deployment or long separation and how to safeguard your marriage against infidelity or emotional drifting. Lastly, they give a sneak peek at the three best $10 dates and how to tailor them to your spouse’s interests and needs.
