I often wonder how many couples secretly wish they were young again, back in the dating age, the chase-and-be-chased-time, still with our spouse, just back in the day. I am sure we remember going out, playing together, having fun. Yes we worked, but we made time for one another, as it was so important to get to know this other person who we were so drawn to, who we couldn’t wait to see, and couldn’t get enough of! Well how about another chance to ask them out again? What if we were back on the gym floor and those magic words were spoken: “Shall we dance?”
Opportunities setup for married couples do not seem to present themselves near enough (there are opportunities for married couples, you ask?). That’s why the MarriageProm is such a perfect escape. A night out, preplanned, a chance to meet other couples, and time with one another. I don’t know about the men, but speaking for the girls, I know I will still secretly wait in anticipation for the dance part…Not just the party down, have fun dance, but just like my younger days, I will look forward to that slow dance. Those few minutes where the music slows, the lights dim, everyone gets quiet, and its just him and me…no talking, barely moving, just breathing, holding each other, feeling so close to the one I have been blessed with as my spouse. That will be my favorite moment, the one I can keep close to my heart, and stealing it away right in front of everyone, with no one really knowing. Just a moment where I’m reminded I’m so happy that I’m his girl, on his arm, dancing close together.
The whole night will be wonderful, but if you’re wondering if its for you, ask yourself, when is the last time you had fun together, without the kids, planned in advance, just for two? I am betting its not as recent as you’d like (if at all!). Consider it an investment. My mom always told me to buy good shoes, as you only have one pair of feet. I’m buying a pair of dance shoes this weekend, as I only have one partner. If you need help with a full evening (dress, limo, dinner), Date Night ATL can help you plan. And on Feb. 4, just wait to hear those three special words from your favorite guy: “ Shall we Dance?”
