The Ultimate Couples’ Bucket List
Most couples won’t end their days quite as memorably as Bonnie and Clyde or as perfectly choreographed as the (spoiler alert!) dual passing in The Notebook. But the good news is you don’t have to wait till the last gasp to do dramatic things together. There are ample opportunities to get out there and live it up with your sweetie each and every day. So don’t just sit there in your Snuggies eating leftovers (there will be plenty of time for that later). Here is a master checklist to ensure that you squeeze all the potential out of your romance while you’re still kicking’!
