Before my marriage "kicks the bucket" list. Need a little help.

I read somewhere that couples that do new things together are happier. Dh and I have been separated and have had a really rocky marriage. A lot of people would be happy if we got a divorc but neither us really want to throw in the towel yet.

We both started letting ourselves go and in addition to not taking of ourselves we stopped taking care of each other. I'm a total introvert and not a big risk taker. I'm trying to be more open to doing more adventurous things though.

I'm created a "bucket list" of sorts. Help me come up with fun things to do to shake things up a bit and get outside of the house and enjoying life together.

So far here's what we have planned this summer.


-going to a baseball game
-ziplining/obstacle course
-rock climbing class

Just to be clear it would he next to impossible to get him in a dance class so save your breath lol.

Maybe asking a bunch of women who spend their free time online isn't the best idea. Lol.

Bump?

We are going to do that. Right now he's resistance to it though. He's done individual counseling through the VA and it was a joke so he's not convinced marriage counseling would be any better.

Try something new in bed? Watch a series together, maybe a few episodes at a time. (Like Netflix. Something you both could enjoy and discuss.)
