Haig and I recently started a marriage course that our church has started. We really felt that it was a blessing for us to be able to take a course like this early in our marriage. We are willing to do anything that we can to strengthen our marriage, while it is just the two of us.
At our first class, we were asked about some of the problems in our relationships as couples. We made a list on the board. Work, family, finances, and distractions were some of things that were mentioned. We were then asked about tools we have to resolve those problems. Prayer was the first thing that was mentioned, along with scripture study, going to our church meetings, attending the temple, and utilizing other church resources. When we were asked if there was anything else to add to the list, my husband added that perhaps it was because we were a newly married couple, but dates really strengthen our relationship. We enjoy getting out of the house and especially when it is not to go grocery shopping or run errands.
A couple of weeks ago, we went on a date to Richards. Haig and I have been there together before and in my opinion it is part of a good Island summer. We had a really nice evening together as we visited with another couple from church and then headed out to Covehead to have our delicious dinner. Obviously, they were pretty busy but their Fish and Chips is certainly worth the wait!
