I’m sure many of you can remember those courtship days….long walks in nature… going on romantic picnics… dinners…moon light walks…the poems and love notes you wrote…flowers for your birthday, or just because…thoughtful birthday presents and celebrations….those conversations that lasted for hours and you were never bored, but completely engrossed in that conversation…the quarrels that you quickly tried to rectify because you did not want to go to sleep angry….
Oh how fond those memories of courtship days are! But that was 2 or 3 or 10 years ago.
Well it does not have to be a memory that you find comfort in because you are now “an old married couple”. Oh no! Indeed not!
courtship should NEVER stop. When we get married it should make courting all the more wonderful. You don’t have to run off to get home..you live together. You don’t have to hold back that fond touch because you don’t want it to be deemed as inappropriate or actually lead to being inappropriate…you CAN be “inappropriate” but guess what. It isn’t!
We put so much hours and work into getting to know the other person and seeking to understand and make them happy during that time but yet when we get married it stops.
Well it shouldn’t. It should get even better, we should put in even greater effort now that we are married.
So NEVER stop courting, but continue, get better at it, work until always….
