You wouldn’t rather be with anyone else, but taking time apart from your spouse could be key to longevity. According to a study by psychologist Terri Orbuch written up in The Wall Street Journal’s “Need Space in a Relationship? Just Don’t Say It That Way? “ , 29 percent of couples said they needed more “me” time (373 married couples were surveyed over 25 years). Women found it more difficult than men to find solo sanctuary; namely due to responsibilities taking care of children, elders, or seeing friends.
Also striking: Of those couples who found themselves “unhappy” in their relationships, not enough alone time beat out an unsatisfactory sex life!
Keep up the sex and then one of you PLEASE get out of the bedroom.
Lots of <3,
