Benefits of binge watching
Apparently watching TV together is not just relaxing and fun, it’s beneficial to a couple’s relationship. Researchers believe it’s because couples form mutual “friendships” with the characters on their shared shows. Humans are social creatures and couples who share social connections feel closer and more satisfied with their relationships. And it seems fictional connections are right up there with real ones. That’s especially good news for couples who lack real world mutual friends. Snuggling on the couch is not so bad either.
