Think back to when you first started dating your partner – there was so much to talk about, so many places to go, and new things to experience together. As the years pass many starts to feel like they are in a relationship rut. Life doesn’t feel fun and exciting anymore. They feel disconnected from their partner. They feel like roommates. Remember a time when you felt close to your spouse or excited to spend time with them? Chances are, your memory involves some vacation or romantic getaway. Researchers have found a strong link between romantic getaways and a high level of marital satisfaction. It makes sense if you think about it. Vacations are times you intentionally pull away from life to invest in time with your partner. Go without your kids or family and you have a recipe for a hot week away.
