They say that couples that travel together, stay together…
According to a survey of 1,000 couples about understanding how important travelling affected their relationship positively, almost two thirds of the respondents claimed that travelling has helped them stay together. The truth is not so far-fetched, when you travel together, there are sudden and exciting elements that fire your relationship just like that first date…
1. A Common Goal And Purpose
They share a common goal and purpose to see the world together. The anticipation and yearning of unraveling destinations, committing themselves to an endless adventure somehow bonds such couples and offers them a reason to always want to be together.
2. Understanding And Adjusting To Their Limitations
Travelling is revealing, not only to the outer world but also to each other. They discover their strengths and weaknesses and find out how to complement each on these roles as they keep on uncovering paths and destinations.
3. They Have Better Communication
According to a survey it was found out that couples who travel together agree better and have fewer disagreements than couples who don’t travel together. Travelling makes them more understanding and patient for each other.
4. They Have A Better Sexual Relationship
Travelling together cuts the work and stress into half, enough to spark romance and affection. According to the survey, more than three quarters of those who travelled admitted that they have a good sex life.
5. Experiencing Something New Together
The indelible treasure engraved in your hearts and minds when experiencing something together can be everlasting. What is new sort of creates a memory that will be forever unique to their relationships.
6. It Reveals Who They Are To Each Other
Since you are together most of the time, there is a little space for keeping ugly secrets. There are no facades and you have to appreciate your partner the way he or she is. Travelling reveals many of the ugly truths. And with this, there is little or nothing to hide.
7. Their Sense Of Humour Is Built Together
You can’t travel together without turning up some humour here and there. There are times when things just go horribly wrong and you have to laugh over it. It could be the horrible food you just bought on the street corner, having your hotel room mixed up or losing a map… something goes wrong and it is enough to have something to laugh at and sustain your happiness along the way.
8. They Live The Romance
It goes beyond what you watch on cinema screens or read in any book, as a traveling couple you live the romance out of spontaneity and a state of mind that you could be led anywhere and something could sparkle another moment of beauty. It is never about the money but the experience that traveling together could bring.
9. They Live In The Moment
While other couples who don’t travel together worry about the future, and build their relationship with doubts, couples who travelled together were not worried about what was going to happen next because they were consumed and captured by the intensity of the wonderful moments experienced with each other. Travelling together didn’t give them the opportunity to over-analyse their situation and be critical on several subjects but made them appreciate the present moment.
10. They Have Become Best Friends
Since they have only each other to turn to and fewer disruptions by external bodies or persons they were able to give themselves their all to become better friends. They would stick with each other through challenges and differences to provide each other with the companion they need.
11. They Are Educated Together
Travelling offers an opportunity for learning. And how do you feel with people who you learn a subject with? The learning experience bonds them together and offers them the opportunity to revel in knowledge as they open their minds and hearts to the world before them.
12. They Are More Forgiving
Traveling together offers room for mistakes to be made and flaws to be revealed. However there are challenges all along the way and couples who travel together understand the need for forgiving each other quickly and moving on.
13. They Experience Freedom Together
Couples who have travelled together in the past relish the freedom and independence travelling provides. With such understanding they can find comfort in respecting each others solitude, privacy and sense of presence. This provides another healthy angle to the progress of their relationship.
