- Keep the Home Fires Burning by tickmenot on 10/3/14
"Dating after marriage" or "fun after marriage?" Absolutely! Fun and dating does not end with marriage, or at least it shouldn't. These two Christian couples, Peter and Heather Larson, along with David and Claudia Arp, give ideas for doing just that. Since nothing costs over $10, the author's have kept things affordable.
Ultimately, dating after marriage is just another word for spending time together, a way to continue to grow closer to each other. All relationships, especially marriage, are about connecting with each other, keeping common ground with another person. Maintaining a strong bond between spouses is something that always needs to be nurtured. Sometimes couples may find themselves in the same room, but not interacting with each other. If that is happening more often than not, shake things up a bit.
Just in case you can't think of anything, this book gives some ideas. To be honest, a lot of their dates are probably things you have already thought of, or you would not find appealing. The idea of this book--couples truly interacting with each other without spending a lot of money--can be used as inspiration to come up with ideas more to a couple's liking. I highly encourage married folks to keep dating. However it is done, get out there and interact with you significant other!
The publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book through Bethany House Publishing for the purpose of review.

- Great resource for couples! by Laura on 8/12/14
I found this book to be a good resource for couples looking for inexpensive ways to reconnect with each other. Some of the dates in the book are not traditional dates. They might include things that you wouldn't necessarily think of as a date like working in the yard or garden, talking to one another in different settings, or window shopping. However, for a couple who is really wanting some time together and is out of money and out of ideas, this book could be a wonderful asset.
I found some of the talking points to be a bit awkward, but some couples might love the help in getting conversations going.
I would recommend this book to all couples looking for an inexpensive way to spend some time with each other.
I received this book for free from Bethany Publishing House in exchange for my honest review.
