Gaming together is an excellent way to spend quality time with your loved one by adding common goals and excitement to your lives. When you’re gaming together, your purpose is mutual – to beat the game – which creates an environment that encourages trust, communication, and teamwork. These are all important factors when it comes to building long-lasting relationships, especially romantic ones. Video games can also help enhance other aspects of your relationship, including your emotional connection and friendship.

GAMING TOGETHER CAN GIVE YOU AN EDGE OVER OTHER COUPLES
It’s no secret that couples who share interests have stronger relationships. If you one, both – or even neither of you – is already a gamer, starting to game together in co-ops will give you an edge over other couples. It can deepen your bond with each other and bring you closer in ways that traditional date nights don’t accomplish.
According to a study conducted by Oxford University, playing video games with your partner is linked to better relationship satisfaction. The findings show that married couples who play as a team tend to be happier than those who don’t. This may be due to common goals and shared challenges, like in It Takes Two, that help bring partners closer together—an appealing trait for anyone who has played a cooperative online game.
A 2010 study from Brigham Young University found that couples were more positive toward each other after playing video games together. When someone was stuck on a puzzle or unable to get past an obstacle, their partner was more likely to help them out if they’d been working as partners instead of competitors.

HOW VIDEO GAMES BENEFIT YOUR LOVE LIFE
Video games provide many benefits to gamers, including increased cognitive function and motor skills development. However, one of their most overlooked benefits is how they can improve a romantic relationship. Many recent studies show video games can increase empathy via two theories: first-person shooter games, which use graphics depicting realistic scenes to create an immersive experience for players; and prosocial games, which focus on building relationships with characters. Results from both types of experiments generally support arguments that playing either type of game has positive effects on empathy scores in terms of taking others’ perspectives and understanding others’ emotions.
GAMING TOGETHER GIVES YOU MORE REASONS TO TALK WITH EACH OTHER
If you’re in a long-distance relationship or just don’t have enough time to spend with each other every day, there are plenty of ways to make your time together or apart more connected. Teaming up for online games can unite you despite being miles apart. In addition to helping you maintain communication, playing games together can also be great for strengthening your bond.
GAMING TOGETHER KEEPS YOU ON TRACK, EVEN WHEN LIFE GETS IN THE WAY
Playing together is a great way to stay on track with each other and gives you an extra reason to look forward to your time together. Whether you just want to play a game once in a while or make it part of your routine, when you game together you stick together. Think of gaming like a classic dinner-and-a-movie date, except you switch direction with takeout and a gaming marathon.
TAKING CARE OF YOUR PARTNER THROUGH GAMING IS SWEET
Helping your partner reach a gaming goal, complete a level or finish a game is incredibly satisfying. You can achieve this with words and ideas, through in-game character help, or – if one of you has more practice – you can show your partner how to complete a tricky level.
While grabbing your partner’s controller isn’t always appreciated, learning how to support each other in difficult situations is a critical life skill. Many games place you in high-stress virtual scenarios and give you a chance to learn how each of you reacts, copes, and overcome. Chatting about the scenarios you encountered afterward helps you reinforce that connection positively and lastingly.
Completing a single-person game as a duo is so much more fun if you’re both invested in the story and adding encouragement, motivation, and problem-solving suggestions. Now double up the fun and try a co-op game where you work together in real-time to solve challenges.
SOLVE CHALLENGES AND THRIVE BY MAKING TIME FOR VIDEO GAMES IN YOUR RELATIONSHIP
PLAYING GAMES TOGETHER CAN STRENGTHEN ANY RELATIONSHIP
Even if you and your partner aren’t competitive, video games can bring you closer. According to scientists at Ruhr-University Bochum in Germany, playing games like Mario Kart increases a couple’s interaction reciprocity and helps couples get along better. Basically, spending time sharing fun activities gets you to connect with each other on a more intimate level—and that connection can last even after you turn off your console.
Online gaming together can bring you closer together and make your relationship stronger. You can make one or both partners’ hobbies into a shared activity, start gaming together, and deepen your relationship by taking on character roles. What once may have been just something to do may become an important part of your relationship that brings you closer together and makes you happier as a couple. Playing video games can help you improve your communication skills with each other and strengthen your relationships in ways you might not expect.

What motivates a couple to renew their wedding vows inevitably varies from couple to couple. Celebrant of the Year, humanist wedding celebrant Jane Blackman looks at the many and varied reasons for couples to renew their wedding vows.
Just as each couple’s relationship is totally unique, often their reasons for choosing to reaffirm their commitments to each other, are very personal and individual. That individuality is the perfect starting point for planning a vow renewal ceremony when I meet a couple and we begin to talk, to plan, and to create a bespoke ceremony for them.
First and foremost, the simplest, but the most powerful motivator for couples, is that they want to truly celebrate the strength of their love and their ongoing relationship – no matter how long or short their marriage so far.
Some couples arrange a vow renewal to mark a milestone wedding anniversary. Whilst any anniversary is absolutely appropriate, couples often choose to renew their promises to each other on a special anniversary such as their 5th (wood) 10th (tin), 20th (china), 25th (silver), 30th (pearl), 40th (ruby) or 50th (gold).
Other couples wish to use their ceremony to acknowledge and express gratitude that their relationship sits happily within an important group of people who mean so much to them and who contribute to their sense of fulfilment and contentment in life, therefore enhancing their marriage. They may choose to gather loved ones and close friends around them – reliving the fond memories of their wedding day – having everyone special to them together in a lovely place – a wonderful excuse for a personalised, memorable party – which includes and engages the most important people in the couple’s lives.
For some couples, the renewal of vows is to acknowledge that they have had significant challenges to cope with, and that as a result of the strength of their partnership, they have together overcome hardship. Perhaps there has been a period of significant illness to endure, or maybe a time of financial strain.
Whatever the difficulties experienced as a pair, celebrating getting through those tough times and the subsequent better times, is the perfect reason to hold a vow renewal celebration.
As well as celebrating the past and sharing gratitude for all that has been enjoyed and achieved together, a vow renewal is a wonderful opportunity to look forward as a pair, to times yet to come and to express hopes and aspirations for the future.
Some couples not only choose to reaffirm the promises that they made to each other on their original wedding day, but many decide to add to those original vows (or to state new promises altogether), writing and making further pledges, to acknowledge their maturing and changing relationship over time. In doing so, couples are able to celebrate the strength of their union and those successful elements of their partnership that have brought them to this point – promising to continue to do those things that bring continued joy and contentment.
A wedding vow renewal ceremony dedicates quality time to reflect on a relationship with a clear, meaningful purpose for that reflection. On every occasion when I’ve met with a couple to talk with them about their ‘story’ and their marriage so far, in preparation for their ceremony, they’ve reported thoroughly enjoying that part of the overall process; really benefiting from the opportunity to consider what makes them tick as a couple, what they continue to adore about each other and how they see their marriage moving forward into the future.
In my experience, a vow renewal can be an occasion full of much fun, laughter, and joy, as well as some very moving, life-affirming moments. So, what’s not to love about getting together with those people who make you happiest, to clap, cheer, and whoop together, to celebrate the continuing marriage of two human beings, who have chosen to stick together for life, because both continue to agree that each of them is still the perfect match for the other?
Humanist wedding ceremonies are flexible and can incorporate a range of wedding traditions from around the world – and that includes the throwing of confetti.
Throwing confetti is a long-standing tradition, with guests showering the married couple with well wishes for the future. It also makes for stunning wedding photos!

Choosing the right confetti can create endless creative opportunities for you to tell your unique, personal love story, and a humanist celebrant will always be able to help you devise the right device or secular ritual to tell your story.
For example, you might choose the colours of your favourite football team, colours that represent pride or gender confirmation, your favourite Harry Potter house, or the flag of the country where you were born. Blue and white confetti streaming down the photos can help bring a bit of Scotland – or Chelsea FC, if that’s more your speed – to a beautiful English dale, Jersey beach, or gorgeous civic building.
There are many websites selling biodegradable petals from flowers grown in the UK. They are eco-friendly, dye-free, natural and very pretty! Check out the choices available from flowerconfetti.uk, Confetti Direct, and Shropshire Petals.
A humanist ceremony can also help you to tell a story about a meeting of cultures or perspectives. That’s what a love story is all about, isn’t it? From the outfits you wear on the day to the readings of your family and friends read out, a humanist wedding is here to tell a story about you, your love, and the joy you feel in coming together as partners for life.
Imagine it now: your picture-perfect wedding. Every photo bursting with colour and personal touches that show the thought and care you have your relationship and the life together you are about to embark on.
Confetti is just one of the tools you can use to make that perfect wedding come to life, along with words, music, and a focus on you as individuals. Your wedding day begins as a blank canvas – think of your humanist celebrant as someone to help you bring your vision to life.
