How often can you realistically make it to the temple? Back when I was single I pulled off nearly six months of once a week. (I missed a week here or there) But that was ridiculously hard. Honestly once a month is pretty impressive IMO. Especially if you are married with kids. The problem is that, as I figure it, you have to put aside about a four hour block. And that doesn’t include the time to get ready. That’s hard.
My wife wanted to go weekly but I’m just not sure that’s realistic. I told her instead to try bi-weekly although even that is hard. (My goal is monthly)
I do think that realistically the only way to go consistently is to go individually rather than as a couple. I had some neighbors tell me this in the first year of our marriage. I didn’t believe them. Now I’ve become more of a believer.
So tell me – especially those of you with kids who are a handful – what’s the best way to schedule regular temple attendance? (It’d be so much easier if the temple had day-care…)
