Skipping date night
If you've heard it once, you've heard it, well, more than once. If you take date night out of your routine, you won't feel as energetic or genuinely good about yourself or your partner. Start skipping it too much, and you're teetering dangerously close to the "letting yourself go" zone.
"With today's hectic world, most couples often have to carve out time alone, particularly when demanding careers or children are involved," says Limongello. "Happily married couples often report making date night a priority as a leading reason for satisfaction within the marriage."
Partying while your partner chills (or vice versa)
This issue can seriously come out of nowhere. And that's primarily because if you're like me, you never thought you'd one day prefer to be home in your PJs before 9pm on a Saturday. But hey, things change! Especially hangovers, which seem to only grow worse. My boyfriend on the other hand? He still has the stamina for multiple nights out in a row. And according to Rhodes, this is a common source of tension for couples.
