Relationship Building Games for Couples

If board games are your kind of thing, you’ll be happy to know that some of them are made specifically for couples. Most of them are a slight variation of popular games such as scrabble and twister so you get to play your favorite game and spend some exclusive time with your partner.
Dance is another fun activity for couples. However, this doesn’t mean that you should take structured dance classes. Just put on your favorite music and goof around together; it will make for a great laugh.
Marriage is a serious venture but it shouldn’t be taken too seriously. Playing and being silly around your partner improves communication, builds intimacy and makes the relationship fun. So let loose and play relationship building games for a happier marriage.
