The lockdown had constraint people to their home, and this had affected couples more than anyone else. Those living together started to get on each other’s nerves and needed space and time away from one another. While for some, they had to be away from their partner. Due to circumstances, they weren’t able to quarantine together. Due to this long-distance, they start to drift away from each other, and their relationship is not able to surpass the distance.
The current situation is new to many, and with being locked up at home, relationships also had to adapt to other aspects of our lives. Many have just moved in with each other, or are new couples and are having a hard time dealing with yourself and your partner.
The constant routine and nothing spicing up your love life with your partner start to increase arguments or irritation. Finally, making one another want to take a break or call off the relationship altogether. In all this chaos going around and within you, one also misses the alone and single time they once had.
