When couples fall in love, connection is all-encompassing.
As time goes on, and often after children join the family, connection can diminish or be lost. Sadly, this can lead to disastrous outcomes such as emotional or physical affairs and even divorce.
Maintaining or recovering connection is essential for a couple to sustain their relationship.
John Gottman, the leading couples researcher, suggests introducing connection rituals that both enjoy, such as:
- Date nights
- Religious holiday rituals
Even folding the laundry together are some of the ways a couple can reinforce their connection.
To coin a phrase: couples that play together, stay together.
