Dreaming of a Post-Pandemic Relationship?

Table of Contents

Throughout our time dealing with this pandemic, we’ve learned a great deal about how to maintain connections. With navigating through isolation and quarantine, we’ve all had to learn how to nurture the health of our marriages and romantic relationships. Couples have had to learn how to work remotely in the same house for months, many had to navigate e-learning for their children as well. It has been over a year of getting used to a new situation. 


Is Your Relationship Dealing with the Quarantine Blues?


At the beginning of quarantine, there was a bit of panic about how couples would be able to maintain stability within their relationship under these new conditions. There was a time when it was very easy to find blogs writing about how the pandemic has resulted in an increase in divorces and a decrease in marriages. But if you were to take a closer look, many would see that that isn’t the complete picture. While it is true that there has been a decrease in marriages in the past year, that has more to do with so many venues and businesses being shut down for most of the year. 


When we take a closer look at how marriages and love relationships have been affected by the pandemic, it all comes down to how stable the relationship was before we were mandated to quarantine. Couples that already were struggling with financial security were hit a bit hard because of the pandemic, especially if one or both of the people got laid off from their job. Essentially, any issue that a couple was already struggling with got amplified, mainly because it has been much harder to distract ourselves from our issues. Quarantine gave many people the space for self-reflection but also created more room to feel isolated and lonely in a relationship. 


Understanding that,, it’s important to know that we are slowly moving forward, with more and more people getting access to the vaccine each day. Businesses are slowly opening up like dining at restaurants or getting a drink at a bar. There is hope for what we will get in the future and many couples have a great amount to look forward to. It’s understandable that many people are still dealing with the mental anxieties of being at home most of the time and the wellness of our communities. It’s important for couples to understand that we’ll be going into a new transition once we reach the stage of post-pandemic. 



Find a Couples Therapist To Give You and Your Partner Quality Support!


It’s normal for couples to feel some anxiety about things opening up again and how to navigate their relationship. It’s also important to know that it’s always ok to ask for the right support for your needs. Couples therapy can be a great way to learn new skills about how to talk about disagreements and understand how to better live in the same space with each other. Sometimes having a specific space with someone to help facilitate having hard conversations is needed. 


This is where the counselors at Loving At Your Best come in to help couples understand and remember why they fell in love with each other. See, with the pandemic, many of us have been in survival mode which has made it harder to remember what we appreciate about our lives and the people we share it with. Many married couples and people in serious relationships where they live with their romantic partner had struggled a great deal with understanding how to share a home together during a pandemic while also still getting enough space for alone time and independence.
