Pandemics are for Lovers

In the past few months, you have likely seen headlines like the following:


Why divorce rates could spike after the pandemic ends, according to a family and divorce lawyer


Divorce during coronavirus: Will splits soar after pandemic quarantines end?


Not surprisingly, the media pushes a negative view of the increased time spent with our partners because it grabs our attention.  We might reach for the remote or click on the article to see if we are headed for divorce or an ugly break-up when this pandemic ends.  But don’t fall for the sensationalism. Our research shows the opposite is happening with couples across the United States.  In fact, this pandemic has been good for relationships!


Hello Couplehood conducted a survey of nearly 250 individuals who currently are in a relationship. We asked, “How has the current pandemic impacted your relationship with your partner?” A whopping 92 percent said their relationship either experienced no change or was stronger as a result of the pandemic. In fact, the majority of individuals (72%) said that COVID-19 hasn’t had any impact on their relationship.


Of those who indicated that the COVID-19 pandemic has had an impact on their relationship, 79% reported a positive change, with most responding that their relationship is stronger because of the increased time spent together!


So enjoy the morning walks, the kisses during work breaks, the family meals at night, and the time spent curled up watching Netflix by your partner’s side. Despite all the negative news and the stress over finances and health, couples are stronger than ever.
