For many couples, the coronavirus pandemic has been a trial by fire. While some have had to live together 24 hours a day under the same roof, others have had to sustain their relationship long distance.

Some may have failed to overcome the obstacles, blaming the global crisis, but many others have come out of these uncertain times stronger and stronger. This is what distinguishes couples with a more unstable relationship versus those with solid foundations who do have the tools to grow together, regardless of the circumstances that surround them.
