Pay Attention

Two weeks for our Marriage Monday, we talked about dating our spouse.  This week I wanted to share with you what I did one night on a date. 

My husband and I had not been out for a while.  A few months actually.  We found free tickets online to a dinner and movie.  We were so excited to not only go on a date, but for free.  We got to the theatre early and sat to wait.  Instead of engaging my husband in conversation, what did I do?  I pulled out my cell phone and got on facebook.  Then several times throughout the night I checked facebook and texts again.  Jeremy never complained.  But later that night, while back home, I realized what I did.  I had the perfect chance to connect with my husband and I wasted it.  

A few months later my husband was out with a friend who confided to him that every time he and his wife were alone, she was on her cell texting or on facebook.  It hurt him.    

Ladies, our husbands need our attention. 
If you have children at a sitter when you go on a date, yes you need to be available.  But let the sitter know to only call in the case of an emergency.  If possible even give her the number of a trusted relative or friend to call before calling you.  Let friends know you are going on a date and will not be available for a few hours.  Whether you are out on a date or the kids have gone to bed and you and your husband are relaxing together, make it a no phone zone.  Give your husband your undivided attention.  

Sweet Blessings~



  1. I think these cell phones are addictive and can ruin 'the perfect moment'. Yes, our husbands do need ALL of our attention. They want to know they are the 'one' that is the most important one. Thanks and blessings to you.

  2. Jenifer, my husband and I are guilty of retreating into our laptops zones in the evening. I needed to hear this. Thanks.

  3. Ouch! I needed to hear this too. Ok, time for a "no phone zone."

  4. Guilty! My husband has called me on it too... but He said just last night in fact that I've gotten so much better at giving him my full attention. Stupid cell phone... I love you and I hate you all at the same time! Great post!
