Take a Love Dare: Married Couples Bucket List

couples bucket list

Okay, I’ll admit it, I love bucket lists. What can I say? They inspire me. So I’ve come up with a married couples bucket list you can use. Because we all know that when you’re married and have kids, it can be difficult to keep things fresh. {Tweet This}

So after you look at our list, give us your ideas in the comments. We’ll keep adding to them so check back to see our latest ideas.

Here is the start of my married couples bucket list.

  1. Have sex on the beach.
  2. Take a biking trip together.
  3. Go skinny-dipping.
  4. Pay off your mortgage.
  5. Revisit your honeymoon destination.
  6. Go to a football game at your alma mater.
  7. Spend the night at a hotel, without the kids.
  8. Make out in an elevator.
  9. Renew your vows.
  10. Learn another language together.

Let’s Talk: What’s at the top of your couples bucket list?

    I think #1 should be deleted, unless it is your “own” private beach. The others were very good, but “nix” #1!

  • Kerry

    I LOVE number one! Very romantic!!!! lol

    • Megan

      Plan ahead to bring a big quilt or something to lay on, because I heard from someone who didn’t, and they got sand everywhere which made it very very uncomfortable

  • Debbie

    This is a Christian website, right?!?

    • Robin Heil Jarrett

      What on that list isn’t Christian?

  • Debbie

    Hmmm, sex on the beach is pretty obvious. Sex between a husband and wife is to be a private thing. “On the beach” is for anyone to see!

      There are so many private beaches, I am sure you can find one. We were in CA in November, warm to us (from Wyoming) but those from CA it is not beach season and there was no one as far as the eye could see in any direction.

    I’m late to the party, but here are two ideas from our married couple’s list: 1. We’re trying to visit every state in the nation together. 2. We always attend mass together regardless of where we are or what is going on. For us it’s the best way of keeping God in our 37 year marriage.

      I love your #1 and that is on our husband wife bucket list too! we have South Carolina and Tennessee left. We are from Wyoming and love to travel. If you haven’t been to WY yet, I can tell you some of the most beautiful places in that state that are “must see.” It is a big state (9th largest in area, and the least populated of all 50 so lots of beautiful wide open space :). We have been married 43 years and are now serving a mission in the South Pacific. That was also on my bucket list, to spread the Gospel of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Another thing on our bucket list for us to do together is to go to all continents. We have been to all but Australia and Africa. We have not been to the far East in Asia, but went to the Holy Land in Israel a few years ago. I would highly recommend that trip to all Christians. We took a cruise to Antarctica with a Christian tour company, and it was amazing! Not only did we get to see a part of the world that relatively few people have seen, we got to hear many lectures on the creations of the Lord while doing it. We are going to Australia in 7 weeks right before we go home from our mission. Since we are already in the South Pacific we are much closer to AU than we will be after we go home.

    My husband and I have done most of these things, and have our own bucket list as well. 🙂

  • Jackie

    Yes, number 1 is great! Inspired!!

  • Sasmooty

    I would like to add to my husband and my bucket list, to go to a foreign country and to the Super Bowl together. I know this is a Christian website but I don’t see anything wrong with a couple having sex on the beach as long as it is secluded day or night where there are no people hanging out. When you are Christian, there are ways to do things in a respectful way.

  • Sasmooty

    I would like to add one more to our bucket list and that is to renew our vows on the beach because we didn’t have a wedding and I always wanted to have a beach wedding. We have been married for 13 yrs.
