Marriages can be jumpstarted, the sacred union between a husband and a wife can receive new life and power. Perhaps you now look like most other husbands -- ordinary, nice, confused. They did it before, but they've forgotten how, or they're trying but it just doesn't seem to be working. All types of marriages -- good ones, mediocre ones, and bad ones -- will experience a jumpstart when a husband figures out how to do something he's long forgotten how to do: date his wife. We work hard to date and pursue our girlfriend, but once we marry our girlfriend it all stops.

So much of the irritability, stress, discontentment and frustration in your marriage possibly stems from the fact that you have stopped doing the very thing that brought you together in the first place. Do you remember how you felt, before marriage, when you were going on a date with your then boyfriend/girlfriend? Dating will rekindle that spark and remind of you why you fell for one another in the beginning.
