In life, there will be plenty of trials. As a married couple, you might feel over the years that there is some distance between you and your spouse.

romantic getaway

You want to connect and get closer to one another, and yet you’re not sure how to do it. Maybe the dinner date and movie night schtick have gotten old. Don’t get us wrong, a classic date has its benefits. But sometimes, you just need something a little more exciting. Maybe the answer to your question is getting away for a long weekend or vacation!

The official start of summer starts on the summer solstice. It’s the perfect time to have a break from the everyday routine of life! Have some fun soaking in the sun on a long weekend getaway with your spouse. Or maybe you’d like to go on an adventurous vacation together. A study conducted by the U.S. Travel Association found that couples who travel more feel their relationship is both healthier and happier.

When you get away, be it a long weekend, staycation to a great local hideaway, or on a week-long vacation, there are many benefits for the two of you. It’s time to dream again about those getaway places, make a plan (using the Vacation Planner), and then get packed to go!

Enjoy the Long-Term Benefits of Getting Away

You don’t have to go away for weeks at a time. A three-day getaway can bring closeness and connection that can last for a year.

In the U.S. Travel Association study, they found traveling couples experience long-term satisfaction.

  • 86% of respondents who travel as a couple believe that romance is still alive in their relationship when they are on the go.
  • 94% of respondents who travel as a couple reported they feel very close to one another.
  • 84% of respondents who travel as a couple believe they spend quality time together.

Who doesn’t want to experience each of these?

Couples who go on getaways have more time to feel closer to one another, and this closeness opens both partners up to better communication. Traveling together can call for teamwork, which is something you need in your marriage every day.

The emotional intimacy that happens when you are away puts both husband and wife into each other’s shoes. There are opportunities for each of you to get out of your comfort zone, rediscover, or learn new things about one another.

Your marriage is healthier when you take time to get away.

Build and Strengthen Your Marriage

The same environment day after day can put a strain on your marriage. Not having some form of bonding once a quarter, bi-annually, or even once a year, can put a strain on the two of you. That’s why when you get away, you build up and strengthen each other and your marriage.

Eight out of ten couples believe traveling has a positive impact on their relationship. Experiencing new and exciting things can add spice to your lives, because when you get away together, you see a bigger picture of the world and how the two of you interact in different situations as a team.

When you break out of your everyday routines on vacation, you build new skills and develop an appreciation of these new shared skills. In addition, you get to meet other fellow travelers along the way who encourage you to experience all this life’s offers.

Overall, getting away can be the best time for you and your spouse to experience life, as well as one another. These times, over the course of your marriage, strengthen your 6 Pillars of Intimacy; as they open doors for each of you to explore new possibilities.

Enjoy A More Romantic and Joyful Married Life

Pack up those sexy items! When you go on your trip, grab the lingerie, lube, toys, and anything else you may need. Going on a vacation or weekend getaway is an important way for the two of you to spark romance.

Couples find traveling to be more romantic and worthwhile than spending their money on gifts, whether big or small. Material possessions can’t beat the wealth that comes from shared experiences. Couples also find those romantic moments are more easily sparked when traveling as opposed to receiving physical gifts.

Who can’t resist a boat ride under the stars while relaxing? Romantic music plays in the background? Or how about an evening of lounging at the beach, watching the sunset?

When you are away from the stressful day-to-day activities, you can be in the moment. And that is something you both need. As an added perk, getting away can also be good for your sexual intimacy! If you feel you are not having that spark while snuggling and cuddling at home, an enjoyable trip to a hotel can do the trick.

So if you are feeling a little saucy, light up some candles in your hotel room and order some wine from room service.

What Are You Waiting For?

Traveling offers many good things for couples such as you. There is a lot to see, a lot to taste, and a lot to try out. And there’s no better way to enjoy this than experiencing it with your spouse.

This summer is the perfect time to get away and get closer to one another. Go see a part of the world you haven’t been to yet or drive up the road to a special getaway location. Either way, you will benefit from the time for just the two of you.

And vacations don’t have to be expensive, or extreme to be fun. A night or two away at a resort or a whole day by the pool can be exactly what the two of you need. Your vacation’s worth is not measured by how much you paid for the trip or how many places you’ve been. What matters is that you get to spend time with the love of your life.

So book that trip and pack your bags. It’s prime time to explore together!
