Couples Journal with Prompts

Love Journal

Communication in marriage is oh-so-important. We get it. We also understand that life gets busy and there just isn’t always the time for late-night chats with your love. Here we have a fun and unique way to further communicate with your spouse. Have you ever done a couple’s journal? The idea is simple and with our printable download, it’s super easy! Just establish a common notebook that the two of you can write your thoughts, memories, love notes, concerns—anything!

A book for your thoughts that you share together is the perfect go-to spot for couples to share personal messages when the time doesn’t always allow them to talk in person, or it might be the perfect icebreaker for topics that are difficult to discuss. Use our free printables, relationship journal prompts, couples journal questions, and make a tradition of a weekly marriage journal check-in.

I would love to start a couple's journal with my babe! Such a cute way to check-in and keep the love alive. I'm making a love journal ASAP! #couplesjournal #lovejournal

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.

Couple's Journal Prompts

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!

Husband and Wife Activities

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!

Couple's Journal Prompts

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.

  1. I seriously adore this idea and have saved it for a gift for hubby to go along with my 12 month of dates {which pretty much happens to be everything The Dating Divas!}. I’m hoping he’ll do it with me! But I would also LOVE to see something like this for the kids, as I homeschool and would love a way to get them to do more writing and communicating when we aren’t the best at always communicating things.

    1. Jessica – I hope your husband loves it! Thank you so much for sharing! I love the idea of a Journal to do with the kids. If you want to start a journal with your kiddos to communicate, I bet you would love the ones in our Mini Mom and Dad Dates Kit (https://www.thedatingdivas.com/mini-mom-dad-dates/). The “Get to Know You Date” has adorable journal covers that have two versions “Between Mom and Me” and “Notes to Mom and Dad”. It can be for writing notes, questions, sharing thoughts etc. There are also printable questions as well if you want to format it more like this couple’s journal!
      You sound like such a good mom and wife! Good for you for making such an effort in your family. We hope we can continue to give you printables for your family! Enjoy!

  2. My hubby and I have had a marriage journal since we got married. It is a fabulous reflection of our life. The ups, the downs and all the in betweens 🙂 Some days we read back through and see how far we have come. It is an amazing blessing to our marriage.

  3. My husband and I started a journal when we were married. It had Mr on one side and Mrs on the other.
    My first entry was all about our recent holiday and that we were talking alot about children and I wrote down the names we had liked, how many we would like etc. Funnily enough 3 weeks later we found out we were Pregnant!! We had fallen pregnant the night I wrote the entry! We love love love the journal now and have written everything in it, Our hopes and dreams as a family and as a couple.

  4. I love this idea. I have a blog dedicated to my hubby and the cute things he does or the reasons I love him, but this is a great idea too. Thanks for sharing!
