So…what can you do?
Well, with different restrictions due to the pandemic in different areas, I guess the best piece of advice is to try and alleviate some of the pressure by making time for yourselves. A date night might look differently in a pandemic but spending a fun night doing something other than the ordinary would be a really good start!
Spend more time in nature together. It’s been proven to make relationships better and stronger! Or maybe learning something new together, which has also been proven to create healthier relationship dynamics!
