Email of the Day: My Husband and I Play Silly Games to Keep the Spark Alive

You always talk about the little things we can do in our marriages to keep the spark alive. My husband and I play silly little games!


In church, we race to see who can turn to a hymn the fastest or if our pastor asks us to go to a specific passage in the Bible, whoever gets there first β€œwins.” I’m sure we get weird looks, but when you’re trying to win bragging rights, it’s absolutely necessary to act like your Bible will go up in flames any second if you don’t get to those verses quickly enough.


Also, my husband gives me his special look – I will just turn to him randomly, and suddenly THE LOOK is in his eyes, and I know what he wants……he wants to engage me in an epic staring contest! Or if we’re holding hands at a store or a movie theater, and his thumb starts getting a little rough, I know we’re starting a β€œthumb war” and the battle is ON.


What the winner gets, beside bragging rights, is ultimately the sweet feeling of camaraderie with and affection from the other. I guess then we’re both ultimately the winners.
