I came across a fun post recently on the Marriage Studio blog from Marie McKinney-Oates in TN.  Marie, a marriage and family therapist specializing in pre-marital therapy, offers up 5 dates to take BEFORE you get married.  These dates are fun and offer you and your soon-to-be spouse an opportunity to face some challenges that are inevitable over the course of marriage.  Things like learning to grow together and exploring new experiences are presented in dates that any couple can do.

I really like her list, its fun and light-hearted but also really encourages you to learn about each other.  Already married?  It’s never too late to go out on a date… you never know you just might learn something new!   Here’s the link:
