Quarantine life isn't for every couple. Spending unlimited time with someone makes it easy to get over them real quick. However, some couples may be thriving in this unique environment. If you've noticed some of the following signs that quarantine strengthened your relationship, you and your partner definitely deserve a pat on the back (and an all-expense-paid beach vacay...but doesn't everyone?!). According to Dr. LeslieBeth Wish, licensed clinical psychotherapist, relationship expert, and author of Training Your Love Intuition, intense events can definitely impact relationships.
"High-pressure events in life can test relationships, and make or break them," Dr. Wish tells Elite Daily. Licensed psychologist Dr. Wyatt Fisher, agrees that situations like the coronavirus pandemic can definitely reveal how well- or ill-suited two people are together. "Pressure and stress will quickly highlight any cracks in your relationship," Dr. Fisher tells Elite Daily. "Ultimately, the pressure will bring the imperfections in your relationship to the surface." Fortunately, couples that have what it takes to go the distance are able to work through adversity and emerge stronger. "On the upside, couples who pass relationship tests report that they 'worked well as a team,' or 'helped each other bring out their best." Here are some signs that quarantine has helped your relationship with your partner grow stronger.
