Working out together, going out for a delicious meal or hitting up a pub for some good live music - these are evening activities we think are keeping our relationship fresh, exciting and strong. But research shows the real secret to a better bond is Netflix binges. Ok, hear me out. Those hours spent in your sweatpants making some yummy finger food and crashing in front of the TV for a marathon of Orange Is The New Black is beneficial. Here is why: Better Communication Watching a variety of movies and shows sparks conversation. You can learn a lot about how each other view the world by commenting on the new things you observe and learn.
