Taking a road trip with your significant other? Chances are good the time together will improve your relationship.
In fact, 91 percent of couples have taken road trips together, and 84 percent agree the experience has strengthened their relationship, according to a new survey of more than 1,000 people released by collaborating with Ford Motor Company.
The survey revealed that togetherness on the road presents an opportunity for quality time among couples in all sorts of ways.
In fact, we asked respondents to choose their three favorite ways to pass with their loved one on the road. The top activities are:
- Talking and catching up with each other (63 percent)
- Blasting our favorite music (60 percent)
- Getting some quiet time and taking in the sights (37 percent)
- Napping while my spouse/partner drives or vice versa (22 percent)
- Listening together to a book, comedy, news, sports etc. (15 percent)
- Playing car games (7 percent)
- Catching up with friends & family via phone (6 percent)
Of course, coupled driving time is not all sunshine and roses. For instance, plenty of couples (63 percent) have a "back-seat driver" on board who "helps" the real driver negotiate the road, offering him or her driving advice.
