Christian Date Night Ideas

Conversation Starters For Date Night!

My husband and I found that getting to know one another is a journey that never ends. As husband and wife, we should constantly pursue getting to know one another intimately. One great way to do that is through communication…sharing with one another our likes, dislikes, opinions, and preferences. Being unveiled is all about transparency and taking the time to be fully known by offering yourself to your spouse. So don’t delay! Write out some of these questions shared below for your next date night and have fun! I went to Joanne’s Fabric and bought two sheets of gold sparkly paper (available at any craft store), cut out small rectangles, and wrote one question on the back each. I am sharing this with you in

An Interview With My Husband About Sex: His Answers Will Surprise You

Recently, I sat down and interviewed my husband regarding sex. I figured by doing this, I would kill two birds with one stone. For one, I would learn more about what my husband prefers… sexually. And two, I would have a steamy article topic for Unveiled Wife. What I didn’t expect, was to find out that not all guys can be stigmatized with the same shallow views about sex. It’s my hope that by sharing this with you, you may see things from a man’s perspective. And that it will possibly give you a little deeper insight into your man. The following are excerpts from that interview: “Alright… sex.” I say as I break out my notepad with preplanned questions. “Yes please.” My husband says

Making Every Night a Date Night!

My husband and I don’t do date nights very often. Now before you gasp and say, “but she’s supposed to be a marriage blogger!”, let me explain what I mean. When our children were really little, money was in short supply. We couldn’t afford to get a baby-sitter and then go out for dinner, so we didn’t try. We had to find other ways to connect. As they grew older, our schedules grew busier with their activities, and my husband’s work. To add one night a week where we wouldn’t be home seemed burdensome, since my husband was on call two nights a week, and he didn’t want to take another night away from the kids. So what we’ve done, during our whole marriage, is

Celebrating Your Marriage

We must understand that marriage is important. We must learn to value our unity as a husband and wife. We must NOT take our marriages for granted. When we do, we lose the importance of being one. We are creatures of habit. If we don’t take the time to form the healthy habit of celebrating, marriage becomes..ho-hum and almost forgotten. My husband and I recently celebrated 11 years of marriage. We’ve had our ups and downs, but an anniversary is a special day to focus on what we have endured for the last year. We made it another year. You are here. I am here. Let’s celebrate each other! Let’s celebrate victories over the hard stuff. Let us remember the fun times and yet still
