Here's How Much One Year in Quarantine Has Aged Your Relationship
This has NOT been a normal year for couples. So if you feel like your relationship has grown and changed a lot since the pandemic started . . . it probably has.
Groupon hired a mathematician from Cambridge University in the U.K. to calculate what one year of quarantining together would translate to in normal couple years, and the answer is . . . it's the same as being together FOUR regular years.
That's right: If you've been together for two years now, it's actually more like FIVE years since you spent one of those together in quarantine.
59% of couples say the pandemic has been the ultimate test of their relationship . . . and they haven't been on a date in an average of five-and-a-half months.
But in spite of all that, 81% say they're looking forward to Valentine's Day. (Barron's)
