Sheltering in place, working from home, schooling kids, raising children...it can be very stressful on a relationship. But why not use this time to grow closer together?
Give each person a time out.
Make quality time for each other.
Designate a safe space for honest communication.
Make sure you understand the message.
Remember that your partner isn’t a mind reader.
Know that intimacy can be shown in many ways.
Divide chores equally.
Validate the other person’s feelings.
Don’t always try to solve your partner’s problems.
Dating someone new? Let your relationship dictate milestone moments, not the virus.
