Are Couples Fighting A Losing Battle During Covid-19?

Most couples fantasized about getting locked with their partner back in time. But the romantic notion around it has quite evolved post-Covid-19. Will most relationships see a change of status by the end of the pandemic? Will they overcome the aftermath or make their way towards a losing battle? Here’s all you need to know about changing relationship dynamics during Covid-19.

After spending some quality days with your partner on account of the dreaded pandemic, couples have started finding it hard to keep the spice alive. The blind-sided love is no longer blind and has brought couples closer to their real personalities in time. This has made way for constant bickering between the partners and their powerful urge to separate only after spending a few days together.

The “being quarantined with your partner” memes had taken the internet by storm in the earlier pandemic days. But now it is yet another dreaded topic of discussion among future couples who think twice before moving in together. 

One report showed how Chinese couples are facing relationship issues and separating only within 2 months of their marriage. There is a long list of divorces on the way if things go this way for couples. As per some sources, China has recorded as many as 14.5 million divorces during the first year of the pandemic. And Indian couples are also not far behind as a matter of fact.

The coronavirus pandemic has certainly changed the dynamics of romantic relationships in today’s date. Dating and couples have changed a lot during the pandemic. Monogamy and Infidelity are the most eminent topics of discussion amongst the opposite sex right now. While some people have given up on the concept of Monogamy as an aftereffect of Covid-19, married and unmarried couples have raised concerns about continued infidelity. 

The use of dating and hook-up apps has noticeably increased in India from 10% to a whopping 25% as well. Male partners have taken the lead when it comes to using such apps. Some of these apps actively encourage infidelity and are making it hard for partners to build trustworthy and long-lasting relationships.
