Relationships need to be nurtured every day to grow stronger. But modern life is full of have-to’s that can get in the way of focusing on your relationship. That’s where a couple’s bucket list comes in!
Creating a bucket list for your relationship is a great way to make sure you’re paying attention to each other during those busy seasons in life.
Make a commitment to check off one bucket list item every week or month so you’re always focusing on growing closer together as a couple. As you experience new things together (or simply take time to enjoy small pleasures), your relationship will grow stronger and you will create lasting memories together.
Your bucket list can also include your goals as a couple, whether they be financial, career, or family-related goals. Adding these to your bucket list will help you to visualize your goals and reflect on your success as you check them off the list.
