There are a few things that can make or break any relationship.
Infidelity. Jealousy. Insecurities. Infertility. Money problems.
How about taking a long drive or road trip together?
Hey, it’s possible.
You can learn a lot from being in a car together for hours, maybe even days, with your significant other… and it may not be all good.
On the flip side though, it could be great. Almost like free therapy.
Think about it.
You are in a car with limited distractions.
The driver is (or should be) focused on the road and conversation. Maybe music.
The passenger may surf on their phone or tablet now and again, but chances are they won’t for very long.
They may take a nap if they’re taking turns driving.
But then what?
Having a list of road trip questions for couples on hand can be an educational and entertaining way to pass the time… especially on those long stretches of highway.
If you aren’t married yet, this could be a great opportunity to figure out if you want the same things from life.
If you are already hitched, this is a good time to reconnect or address any issues you may be having.

Open, honest communication is the key to any good relationship. If you aren’t forthcoming with your partner, issues and feelings have a tendency to get bottled up… until they explode into an argument that could have likely been avoided.
That or you wind up resenting each other.
But know this… talking to your partner doesn’t always have to be so formal.
There is a time and a place for everything.
While there will be times where a sit-down heart to heart is warranted… there will be other times when things just happen.
Road trips can be the perfect excuse to reconnect with one another in a light-hearted and casual way.
For couples in a long distance relationship who may not go on road trips often, check out this post on things to do as a long-distance couple.
