Elements of Successful Couples Relationships and Games
Games play a part in couples' satisfaction in their own relationship. Research into marital satisfaction over the past 50 years shows that there are changing patterns in the ways in which partners in a couple relate to one another, in their expectations, and, in fact, in the free time they invest in couples and family focused activities.
What is emerging - and this will probably not surprise anyone - is that couples today expect a greater degree of emotional intimacy than did previous generations.
If couples over 50 years ago may have considered their marriages successful if they raised children that had jobs, got married and had children themselves, this is just not enough for people today. That is only one axis on the satisfaction scale for today's couple, who are now expecting a happy sexual relationship and a close emotional tie where the partner is considered one's best friend with whom one shares secrets and dreams, failures and disappointments, as well as achievements and joy.
One thing best friends do together is play games and laugh.
What better gift to get for your relationship than a classic game that has stood the test of time!
