How to Make a Weekly Marriage Journal
To get started with your own couple’s journal, find a simple notebook or journal (I am in love with this journal!) and add the printable journal cover to the front. You can convert any notebook into your designated love book – it is super easy! You probably even have one laying around your house that you can use. Next is preparing a place for the couple’s journal questions.
Each week choose some new relationship journal prompts from the journal jar. Personalize your love journal to you and your spouse. Write about anything really, but these couple’s journal prompts are there to help you get started and inspired on what to write.
Couple’s Journal Questions
The prompts include a variety of couple’s journal questions including ones that ask you to fill in the blank, make lists, complete a written task or share a memory. The prompts also range from lovey-dovey to sexy and sassy! Certainly, there are plenty of couple’s journal ideas to fill this little love journal to the brim!
Add your writing prompt into your notebook (I totally recommend this double sided adhesive for the job) and get writing! Your message doesn’t have to be lengthy or eloquent – just from the heart. That is what is most important!
Now, the fun part! Leave the journal somewhere for your sweetie to find. Your spouse will love reading your heartfelt message written just for them and now, it is their turn to do the same!
If your spouse isn’t on board with this idea or perhaps is living long distances, why not just make it a gift from you? If you were to take a little time each week for a year and fill this journal up it would make a very special gift. I am a big fan of the book The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman and I just can’t help but think what an extra special gift this would be for a spouse whose love language is words of affirmation! Also, if you are in a long-distance relationship we have lots of more ideas for you.
However, if you choose to use your couple’s journal, we hope you love it! You get all of these printables by clicking the download button below.
