Who Plans Fun Things

from Clipart.com

It’s easy to feel resentful if you are the one in your marriage who plans for all the fun activities, the surprises, the treats, the unexpected outings, the festivities, the dates.


Now, that’s not meant as “don’t plan any more fun things until your mate starts pitching in with ideas.” No, that’s not what it means.

Some people have a natural propensity for fun ideas and for instituting seemingly spontaneous festivities which totally surprise the other partner. If that’s your situation, then be glad your partner enjoys what you do and that it’s a special time for you both.

If he or she likes what you do and you get enjoyment out of the fun, then don’t let a pity party ensue for being the only one who makes exciting plans in your marriage.

Accept it and relish the exuberance you have. Be glad your mate finds enjoyment in all the ideas you plan. More than likely your mate does do small things to surprise you—if not, tell your spouse how much a few spontaneous, loving acts would mean to you.

What do you think? Do you have one person in your marriage who is better at creating everyday fun and date night events?

    This is good advice not just for if you’re the only one, but for anything…when the pity party starts – and it is SO easy to fall into – then changing your attitude can make all the difference. Thanks for the reminder!
