TORONTO, Feb. 15, 2012 /CNW/ - A recent study has found that one in four
couples in Ontario spend less time together than at the onset of their
relationship. Further, the survey reveals that finding time for one
another is particularly challenging among younger couples, with those
aged 18 to 44 struggling to spend quality time together.
"Despite being in committed relationships, young couples are finding it
difficult to balance work obligations and their social lives with
making time for one another," said Kimberly Moffit, a renowned
relationship expert based in Toronto. "For a relationship to be
successful in today's busy world, you have to remember what got you two
to where you are - so toss aside the smartphones, turn off the
computers and make the effort to have real conversations."
When given the opportunity to spend more time together, the study also
found that couples in Ontario prefer overnight getaways and the chance
to experience something new together. "So why not redefine 'hump day'
by taking a day off during the week to head out for some skiing,
snowboarding, snowshoeing or even ice fishing - and let the rekindling
unfold?" said Moffit.
Moffit notes that there are unlimited activities couples can do together
to help strengthen relationships - from romantic rendezvous such as
savouring mugs of the finest hot chocolate by an open fire to the more
exhilarating outings like taking in breathtaking views while
snowshoeing across Ontario's longest suspension bridge. And when it
comes to planning, they need not look further than their own backyard,
where couples can experience the best activities winter has to offer.
