With my husband, every day is Valentine's Day. So each year we have a sit-down dinner for 4 married couples who are our friends. We ask them wear "something red." Then during dinner several questions are asked to each couple. We start with the man wanting to know how he met his spouse; then ask that same question to his wife on how she met her husband. This is often quite funny. In the next round, the wives go first, then the husbands with the question, "When did you know you were in love?" The third round is, "How did you get married?", and finally, "Tell us one thing you really love about your spouse."
I decorate the table in red and white and make a heart cookie with each person's name on it as their place card. We have done this for the past 9 years and it is always a positive experience for all. We do not ask embarrassing questions and we have had people tell us the night was "life changing."
My husband could be your poster boy, Dr. Laura. Every day he not only tells me he loves me, but shows me. This is a second marriage for both of us. We were each married for 30 years, raised our families and then divorced. A mutual friend introduced us 14 years ago so we are thankful every day to have met our soul mate.
