Unfortunately, maybe because most couples feel like there is no time for fun, or fun is something for the kids, couples forget how rewarding and necessary fun is in their relationship. However, doing things that are fun, especially engaging in new enjoyable activites is one of the best ways for couples to increase feelings of love, excitement, and connection.
One of the biggest challenges couples face is time apart. Working long hours, commuting, travel - it's more common than ever to be away from one another. Even when we know it can't be avoided, the distance has an impact. Having less time together means less opportunities for connection, intimacy, and casual chats. It limits our ability to give and receive affection.
