Congratulations, you got married in 2019! Or you’re planning a wedding for early 2020. Or you’re still newly married at heart. Wherever you fit on that spectrum, you’re likely keeping your new marriage in mind as you put together new year’s resolutions. Sure, get more fit, but also…be happy with your husband or wife? Save money after going into debt for the ceremony? Everyone’s story is different, but as a new bride, there are some concrete resolutions you can tackle in 2020 to make sure your new life as a bride if off to a great start.
Plan a monthly date night
The first year of marriage often feels overwhelming, and especially if you’re young and working, it can be easy to forget to plan a special time to enjoy what you did before marriage: dating. So, plan a monthly date night. Sit down at the beginning of the year and plan at least one big event to look forward to each month–something you’ll both enjoy and do together. Buy concert tickets, a theatre subscription, join a bowling league, something. Of course, you should have “dates” and alone time more frequently, but it’s easy at the beginning of the year to look at the year as a whole and pick one big event each month to focus on. Then, you can branch off from there.
