Everyone knows someone who met their significant other while participating in a sport or hobby. Common interests are one of the things that draws couples together. Years later with kids and jobs and household chores pulling you each in different directions, maybe it’s time to seek out that common ground again. David Finch, writes in Psychology Today: “If it seems as though the fun is missing from your relationship, it may just be that you’ve lost common ground….Whether it’s cooking together, bathing in separate tubs on a cliff at twilight, or competing side-by-side as pretend football coaches, the key is finding easy opportunities to establish common ground.”
