No matter how blissfully content you were in your relationship before March 2020, there’s no denying the global pandemic shook things up a bit. We were all thrust out of our comfort zones and faced with a scary, new reality with no return to normalcy in sight. While everyone experienced their own set of challenges, one of the biggest for most couples was how to co-exist together in this very strange and ever-present new normal.
Whether you were in the midst of planning your wedding or decades into a happy marriage, the experience of surviving a pandemic side-by-side was likely not one you ever prepared for—or thought you’d find yourself in, at the very least. Alas, so many couples have come out stronger, despite going through some of the most difficult times of their lives. The experience brought so many couples closer and taught valuable life lessons that so many of us will carry with us throughout our lives.
