Why are goals important in a relationship?

Collective goals nurture happiness between you and your partner, because you're working toward something together. They can build upon each other's strengths. These goals can be short-term, such as arranging a weekly date night, or long-term, such as saving money for a house or a vacation. The partner who is a whiz with finances can establish a budget while the partner who loves to plan researches hotels and prices. Discuss steps to make your goals happen, and adjust them as needed. Be sure to talk about any plans that would change the goals, such as making a career move or going back to school.
