It is not about what you fight about, it is how you fight.
2. Relationships that are based on an adventure
Boredom can be a massive obstacle to a lasting relationship. After a period of marriage, it is easy for couples to get into these grey areas where everything is repetitive, predictable, uninteresting and boring.
Between careers, kids and all the side hustles, it can be challenging to stay connected to your partner.
Research shows that couples who enjoy the most intense love are those who enjoy participating in new or challenging activities together. New activities are arousing, which your brain can misinterpret as an attraction to your partner; and reignite the original spark. Seeking adventure is an excellent way to shake it up.
What to do if you feel bored in your relationship?
A study revealed that couples are happier with their relationship after taking part in exciting activities.
New experiences have been found to activate the brains reward system. Novelty floods the brain with dopamine and norepinephrine. These are the same hormones that are released during the early days of romantic love. Doing exciting things together will bring back the excitement you felt on your first date.
