Let’s play with our wives

“Let’s play with our wives” was the title I gave to an outing with some couples sometime ago. It was a-one-day recreational affair for the couples almost all of whom are professionals, business men and women. We left the main city of Lagos early that Saturday morning to a resort by the great expanse of water in one of the numerous lagoons in Lagos. We danced with our wives. We ate, we drank coconut water. We went on boat rides on the great waters. Some went on other rides. At about four o’clock we started the journey back to Lagos after hours of fun. We had a session of discussion on how to make our marriages better.
About two weeks ago, I was out again this time to a private resort on a beach by the Atlantic Ocean. I was there with my wife, my daughter and her husband with their four little children, my children (minus one) and in fact the entire household with five visitors. Not far from now, I will leave my home in the morning alone with my wife to a resort where we will spend the whole day and get back to our home in the evening. We shall hold hands strolling. We shall hold each other waist to waist strolling. We will chat. We will laugh. We will kiss. We fall on the sand like a newly wedded couple. We thoroughly enjoy ourselves during these periodic outings as a family or as a couple. This is aside the weekly dates with my wife, where we like to take a meal once a week outside our home. I create time for this despite my busy schedule. I am a very busy man but I have always been determined to make sure that I create time to play with these two categories of people. First, my wife and second, other members of my house hold. All work, no play makes Efezino a dull boy.
Someone may argue that how can one take his wife out when he can barely take two meals a day. I have been married to my wife for over thirty years and there was a time early in our marriage that I did not have the means to take her out. But I never allowed lack of money to stop me from providing fun for my wife. In those years, both of us will take motor cycles used for transport (Okada) to a hotel with a swimming pool and other facilities. We will buy the cheapest bottle of soft drink and ask for two tumblers to share the content. We drink, chat, take a walk and then take another ride back home because we had no car. I strongly believe it is the duty of the man, the husband, the head, and the leader of the home to deliberately create fun for his wife and house hold. It is one of the basic duties of the man. So I believe.
Jesus used to take his disciples out to a RESORT by the name “Brook Cedron”. John 18:1-2.If you do not learn to play with your wife now, you will be like strangers to each other at old age.
