How Traveling Helps Your Relationship
If you are looking for the perfect excuse to give your significant other on why you need a vacay ASAP, I think you've just found 5!
I have always believed that traveling can really help your relationship. I say this purely on personal experience, there are no statistics or scientific facts proving my theory. I guess it's just pure opinion. The following are the things traveling did for our relationship:
1) YOU LEARN TO TRUST EACH OTHER.
When you are traveling you become heavily dependent on each other, which helps you grow as a couple. There will be things that need to get done and you will learn to share tasks in order to make the trip work. Traveling makes you more accountable and disciplined (at least it did for me).
2) REMOVES OTHERS FROM THE RELATIONSHIP.
Regardless if it's family, friends or work, when you travel it's just you and your significant other. Nobody else to give an opinion on your relationship or how you do things making it for a more relaxed environment.
3) YOU BOND AND YOU ARE NEVER ALONE.
At times, life gets in the way of bonding with your significant other. Wether it's grabbing a beer and watching the sunset on the beach or an activity that gets you out in the outdoors, these are the special moments that you experience and share while traveling. Although you think you might get bored, this never happens.
4) LEARN SOMETHING NEW ABOUT EACH OTHER.
When traveling, your strengths and weaknesses will quickly flourish and it's not always a bad thing! It will make you a more patient person and you learn to appreciate your differences. The beauty of differences, is that you can easily see who is good at certain things. For example, Ricky is the accountant and keeps us in line with our budget. I on the other hand, am the spokesperson of the team! Although Ricky hates to admit it, I am also the best negotiator. Ricky is more analytical and I am quick to the punch.
5) COMMUNICATION, COMUNICATION, COMMUNICATION!
Let's just put it this way, at times you have no one else to talk to but your partner. Of course you'll make friends along the way, but being alone with each other forces you to communicate. If you get mad or upset about something, you'll have to talk it out sooner or later. It's better sooner than later! No one wants to waste their money, time and vacation being miserable and avoiding your partner the entire time.
So what are you waiting for? Book that trip and go spend quality time with your loved one!
