66 Journal Prompts For Couples

One of the key reasons that couples experience success in their relationship is by incorporating a space that promotes communication.

Writing in a journal is a wonderful and effective way for couples to improve their relationship. The journal gives you a safe and unique space to work on communication, address tension, and build a lasting connection in your relationship.

  • When was the last time that you wrote a love letter to your partner?
  • When was the last time that you wrote a note sharing gratitude to your partner?

Imagine life years ago when one partner would send a letter to the other. Think of a military spouse. They are off at war and miles from their partner and family. They receive a letter that probably took weeks if not months to arrive. The letter held details of life and love. Beyond a doubt, writing is powerful.
