Marriage in a Bucket

June 18, 2012

in the generous life

I was just reading Intentional by Grace’s Our 2012 Summer Bucket List. Aside from the fact that I want to do most of those things too, it got me to thinking about bucket lists.

bucket list: A list of things to do before you die. Comes from the term “kicked the bucket”.

I think it would be cool to create a Marriage Bucket List. What things do you want to do together as a couple this summer? In the next 5 years? In your lifetime together? (I’m going to add a list of places where I want to kiss my sweetie. Yes, definitely, I want to kiss him in Florence, Italy.)

I do not want to get to the end of my life and find that I just lived the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well.  Diane Ackerman

A marriage bucket list is such a good idea! Couples can sit down and write down things each of them want to experience with each other, and it gives them a purpose and a goal that they can do together. This could be especially great for couples who feel like they’re stuck in a rut or they’ve run out of things to do together. Having a marriage bucket list can help them reconnect in so many ways, and discover things about each other that they’ve never known before.

What a great idea! I never thought of doing a marriage bucket list. Now, what to put on my list?
