Why Couples Who Travel Together Stay Together?

imageedit_2_9502645727

We are in the initial phase of taking the road ‘less traveled’ and soon becoming ‘globetrotters’, but from whatever little we have explored, I would love to share a few good things about traveling together. From my own experience, I can vouch for the fact that couple travel is the most amazing thing, two married people can do! (Suggested Read: Amazing Ways To Make Your Life More Like A Vacation)

No Fights Over Petty Stuff

After many years of dating plus more than 1 year of marital bliss, I can say from my ‘little’ experience that traveling has changed both of us. I remember the first time we traveled together to Ibiza for our honeymoon, we were literally yelling at each other for every little mistake we made. It was like a new adventure for both of us. But once we started to adjust to the new equation of living with each other 24×7, we started appreciating each other a bit more. 

We understood that situations, outside traveling, can get little chaotic as well. As life is all about ups and downs, we clasped each other tightly through thick and thin and made the most of our experience. Traveling taught us to be more patient (And I believe this is what honeymoons are for – better understanding).

We don’t sweat the small stuff now! Oh! And Ibiza was definitely one of our funniest traveling holidays ever (*Being Sarcastic*). I’ll share the details soon.

Keeps The Relationship Fresh And Lively

Being able to explore new things and see unique places together is so so so gratifying! You have someone by your side, with whom you can share your passion and tell how happy it makes you.

After a few days or months of being at home, when we tend to get wearisome of the same routine, it is only traveling that comes as a breath of fresh air for us! We look forward to our travel days and count seconds for them to finally arrive. So, once Harsh gets back home from a laborious day at the office, it is my sweet banter like ‘how many days are left’ – that gives him a reason to smile. 🙂

Gives A Reason To Laugh At The Same Things

I don’t know how but traveling does build a common sense of humor of a couple. As a couple, I and Harsh have learned to laugh about the same things and make the most of everything. Even if things go a little haywire during our travels, we know how we have to laugh them off and forget at the end of the day!

Matches Up Chemistry And Fine Tunes Taste

Slowly and steadily, we have started to appreciate each other’s tastes and likings. As Harsh is not into too many historical sites, I make sure that we choose a destination that is not all about history. And likewise, as I am into beaches, Harsh ensures that we have more of beach holidays, time and again. Traveling couples have a certain chemistry in their relationship which becomes quite evident. Moreover, they remain on the same page of their life.

Things I have realized from traveling together

  • Not just self-discovery, planning romantic vacations together can help you discover your partner’s strengths, weaknesses, likings, tastes, and interests, which is quite healthy in the long run of a relationship.
  • Understanding surely goes a notch higher and patience level increases.
  • With traveling comes a better understanding as two people get a chance to indulge in better communication.
  • The spark of romance never dies down and the relationship remains healthy.

Traveling is a pretty incredible journey on its own, but what’s way better than jetting off alone is traveling each every place with the one you love by your side. If you are itching to ditch the ordinary lifestyle and go for thrilling expeditions just grab your partner and don’t delay it for anyone!

    I agree that traveling with your partner totally grows your patience with eachother! Our patience is being tested almost daily while traveling, it’s exhausting, you’re always lost (usually), and you are often put outside of your comfort zone! I believe the true test to a relationship is whether or not you can travel together long term! It will make or break you!

    Traveling together does keep the relationship fresh. There is always something new to look forward to and share new experiences, both good and bad. This helps in strengthening bonds and ensures an enduring relationship.

    Agree. Travel takes the tensions of daily chore off your shoulders and for once you can simply relax and enjoy together. There is a new level of excitement, a new beginning every time you hit a new destination together

    Great to hear about more couples who enjoy travelling together. Me and my husband have been travelling together for nearly 20 years now and there is no-one I would prefer to wander the world with. We bicker at times and occasionally we will head off for a few hours of time alone but we would never consider going anywhere without each other now. Like you mention, we have now developed a travel style that works well for us so why change it.

    I totally agree with this – I think that if you can travel together, you’re pretty much set for any situation life can throw at you – I’ve always said traveling together with either make or break a couple!! One of my big things I try to remember in our travels as a couple is that we don’t always have to be tied at the hip – sometimes we cherish some alone time, especially since you’re normally with them 24/7 when you’re away 🙂

    Agreed! The longer we travel with each other, the closer we get and the deeper our love grow! However there are challenges traveling with a partner but in the end you get over all of them because you know nothing is more important than your love for each other.

    It’s good to know how you grow very well with your relationship. I hope that you can conquer the globe together too! cheers and safe travels to you! <3

    Traveling as a couple or with friends does allow bonding among individuals. I totally agree with what you have written, especially the part about sharing your passion with the one that is most important to you.

    It is great that you now make the most of every experience and situation. This is actually an amazing attitude toward life in general not just travel and I am happy to see that this is just another thing that travelling can teach you. It is always great to travel with like-minded people if you are not lucky enough to have found your soulmate already 🙂

    I wish I had a partner to tag along every time I went (or at least most of the times) . I second what you say here. Having travelled a lot with friends before deciding to go solo I agree that travelling with someone helps you understand your friends/partner and yourself in a different light as compared to day to day lives when not travelling

  • Reply Joan Torres January 10, 2017 at 11:43 am

    Yes, I always wondered why all travel couple bloggers always stay together, but you are totally right, both share a huge passion that sticks with them for life. A great reflection!

  • Reply Paula - Gone with the Wine January 10, 2017 at 5:55 pm

    A lot of good points there! I believe that traveling is also one kind of a survival game, since we often are in foreign countries with strange circumstances. That probably makes couples very close, and trusting. Very good topic!

    We love to travel together and cannot agree more with you. Traveling together has helped us in sharing responsibilities and planning well. When we have to travel alone, we tend to miss the other person and do not enjoy our travels that much.

  • Reply Zwitsy January 19, 2017 at 10:31 pm

    I haven’t tried traveling with someone close to my heart – like a boyfriend for example. But sure that the reasons you have figured out and discovered, I couldn’t agree more. Perhaps, if I found someone whom I could share my half life with and my travel desire, I surely want to grow with that person then.
