100+ Journal Prompts for Couples to Be Happier Together

Love is beautiful and it needs our effort.

Love is beautiful, a blessing, exciting, and a lot of good things. And love requires time, effort, honesty, and commitment. At the start, relationships seem to carry themselves fuelled by ecstatic emotions, tingling sensations, and surprising discoveries. With time, however, couples have to deal with the other things life brings: conflict, work, time constraints, boredom, tiredness, different choices, mistakes, and a lot more. All of these things test us and our relationship. They also help us look at the health of our relationship and decide what to do.

Amidst all this, couples that want to last have to choose to bring in moments of comfort to each other so that they can wage through whatever life throws at them together. If there are no breaks or relief from troubles, how can we be happy? A healthy relationship is where both partners can be a safe haven for each other despite what might be going on in their lives.

To become and stay a comfort to each other and be happy together, we need to find and honor the needs of our partners. One of the ways to give love to your significant other and also learn more about them is by doing journal prompts for couples!

These relationship journal prompts will help you,

  1. Express the different ways that you appreciate your partner. So many things are left unsaid that shouldn't be because it would make the other person feel so special if we said them. Journaling will help you do just that.
  2. Feel closer and more in love with your partner. Even if you are the only person doing this, giving focus to the beauty of your partner and your relationship will surely make you feel really loved!
  3. Communicate better with each other. Journaling can help you uncover some of the needs or underlying issues in the relationship that you can then address together.
  4. Understand yourself and your partner more.
  5. Build more trust for each other by being honest and vulnerable.
  6. Get a better view of the health of your relationship. This will help you not take things for granted and see how happy you and your partner are in the relationship.
  7. Create a wonderful experience together. Chances are you won't do all of the prompts at once. This activity will require you to keep a journal together or individually. In any case, this will be a memento to look back on and solidify the love between the two of you.

How to do journal prompts for couples

  1. You can either start this on your own and then have your partner do it too, or you can do this together. It depends on your situation.
  2. If you're doing it together, you can share a journal but if having separate journals is more convenient and lets you journal freely, go with that option. You can use an app like Gratitude or go with the physical journal option.
  3. You can do one prompt every day or pick up the ones that connect with you and do them at once.
  4. Basically, there's no one right way. You can tailor this activity according to your needs and what fits best in your relationship.
  5. Most importantly, be honest, don't worry about writing perfect words, and express your feelings as they are.

With that, let's delve into journal prompts for couples that will help you be happier and closer together, feeling more fulfilled in your relationship.
