CTC Night (At Home) --- REALLY Thankful

Hello all you married lovers out there. Here's a fun stuck at home BYHSC date idea:

Write 25 things that you are thankful for about your spouse, and then share it with each other.

Also, the holidays are a great time for dates when you have small children. It gives you a chance to get out and go somewhere and get back into boyfriend/girlfriend mode. Having lots of family around means "FREE BABYSITTING". Take advantage of it! Let them know as family you can return the favor to newer generations of newlyweds in the family. 


Add this wonderful tradition to your wider family traditions. 


What better gift to give this holiday season than the gift of an eternally lasting relationship.
 Happy Dating

CTC Night (At Home) -- Feeding The Flame

This one is one of my favorites for helping me reignite the original flame. When your marriage settles into a  comfort zone and the passion starts to flicker try this:

Re-live the past:


One of the techniques therapists use to bring a couple back together is help them remember why they got married in the first place. Why wait for a therapist? You can remind yourself regularly and watch it bring that spark back into your relationship


Make a nice meal, or get some take out
Break out the wedding photos and look through them together
When was the last time you looked through your school yearbooks together? Take advantage of the fun of sharing the good times and bad times of those periods in your lives and remembering what brought you two together in the first place.


Happy Dating!

Continue - The - Courtship Night (At Home) -- Wholesome Sex Toys

YEA! It's Continue-The-Courtship Night!

Tonight it's his turn:

It's not totally free, but doesn't have to be terribly expensive either. Shop for and try out a new sex toy together.  

 
I've not found anything in gospel doctrine or the scriptures that prohibit the use of  any apparatus or device in marital sexually intimate activities. In fact, just the opposite. I believe all creations and inventions are inspired by our Father in Heaven and are for the intent to do good. 

It is the Adversary who inspires their use for evil. Sex toys are an excellent example. There are many couples who (due to physical disabilities or limitations) struggle to have sexually intimate relations with their spouse, or are incapable of reaching the full sexually bonding experience without the aid of a sex toy. 

We keep the use of these tools sacred by using them in the bonds of marriage to bring a couple closer together and strengthen their eternal relationship.
 
It would be a good idea to discuss first how you both feel about using it and any concerns. Practice being open-minded and respectful of each other's feelings. The gadget can be for you or him or both.

Discuss how you would go about getting what you want. I recommend going online as opposed to going to a store. If you do go online, look for a vendor that is tastefully done, (ie. no nudity, profane language, etc...), tastefully displayed, and won't send you flyers in the mail.

I recommend Simply Sweet Marriage.Com as a good guide for the type of vendors that are respectful of you and the sacredness of sexuality. They also give good descriptions and definitions of the items you're considering.



No, I don't get a kick back (though I probably should  :-)  ), but I'm always willing to promote anyone who put the sacred above worldliness.

If this brings up concerns you can't resolve together, drop me a line @ samzaragoza@sbcglobal.net

Happy Dating!
