I think it is a great resolution.
Ah, but that's not what you said before. You said they were writing each others' resolutions, which is the same as telling each other what to work on. Now you're saying that it's just suggestions on things they might like to do.
If it really is the second one, then that's fine, but tbh just because it's a new year's resolution doesn't make it any more special. If you're in a long-term thing with someone then surely you're talking about your decisions and goals anyway? Just because you don't arrange a specific sit-down with your partner to each go over your goals, does that mean that you never talk about it? Of course not! And if they're just suggestions, then why are you not able to put your suggestion in?
