I’ve written about having a marriage mission statement. Having a mission statement is an important strategy for successful individuals, organizations, and marriages. Everyone should have one. But what about a marriage bucket list? A Google search reveals a bucket list is “a number of experiences or achievements a person hopes to have or accomplish during their lifetime.”
Bucket lists might be your key to fun in marriage.
Bucket list items are similar to your life goals, but they seem to be a little less serious. A goal list usually includes very serious things, while a bucket list may just include something that sounds fun. Marriage should be fun, and having a bucket list could be a way to keep that fun alive.
Mission statements and goals lead to growth, as most goals are very challenging and force you to make personal changes. Bucket lists can do the same, but some experiences may have a goal of just having fun, or just going BIG. So what exactly should go on a bucket list? Anything and everything you can dream of should go on a bucket list!
I’ve made some suggestions below. Check them out, but don’t stop there. When you finish reading them, grab a pen, paper, and your spouse, and start your own bucket list.
