Key to a thriving, happy romance? Playfulness!

 A new study finds that couples who play together, stay together.

Researchers in Germany say being playful with your loved one can influence how happy you feel with your sex life. It may even reveal how long the relationship will last. Scientists believe playfulness is not only important for children, but it also plays a role in most adults’ love lives.

Surprising your partner or recreating special moments through role play are some of the things that can boost a relationship. Researchers suggest that a person’s playfulness can help with reducing conflict. It also cuts down on monotony as pairs engage in an active and fulfilling sex life and build trust with each other.
