For those who are or who have ever been in a serious relationship...
What are, or have in the past been, your main goals as a couple, moving forward? (excluding marriage and children) And what are currently or were your planned steps towards achieving those goals together?

Relationships are different, so, therefore, they have different goals. But here are some goals from my two main relationships that I have had-
My ex and I were together for a very long time and started out as friends even before dating. The goals that we had (verbally or otherwise) were communication throughout the day, open mind to trying new things, weekly date nights (or more if we had the time), honesty, minimum to no jealousy, etc. We had a hard time expressing our feelings, and that was mainly why it was a rocky relationship overall. The relationship was on and off for many reasons, as it ended on ok terms, but it was a lack of honesty and crossing lines that did it.
My current boyfriend and I are really good at everything except communication, but I usually chalk that up to the two of us being in separate states at University. We find time to communicate when we can, but it is understandable if it isn't possible. I'm really paranoid, and constantly question everything about myself, a situation, etc.
It bothers him when I do that because it ends up with the "what if" questions, but I have since toned it down a lot.
I hope this helps at least a little bit if at all :)
