Traveling with your significant other can be a great test for a relationship. You get to spend quality time together, while problem solving and managing stress. If you are looking to take your relationship to the next level, try traveling with the person for more than two weeks to see if you are both ready for more.

Spending time together

How much time have you spent with your partner straight? Meaning how much time have you spent with them not going to work, leaving to go shop, or running errands? This is what traveling together is like. You spend time with your partner for an extended period without breaks. Two weeks is a good start for traveling with your partner. In two weeks, you can determine how it is like to be with them for a long period of time. In that time, you can learn a lot about each other and it is a good test for relationship.

Things always go wrong while traveling

Be prepared that during your travels, things will go wrong. You could miss a flight, lose a passport, or even pass out in a bar. These are the experiences that will test your relationship for the better. What happens when thing are out of your control and you have to deal with them alongside your partner? How does your partner deal with change or difficult situations? These are all the things you can find out while traveling.

Interaction with others as a couple

If you and your partner are caught up working all the time, you may have little opportunity to mingle with other couples. A good relationship test is to see how you interact as a couple with others. Is one person overbearing or is the other person acting disinterested? Learning how to be a couple in social situations is helpful to any relationship.

Finding the point where you need alone time

It happens to every relationship, so there is no need to be around the bush about it. Sometimes everyone needs a little quiet time. Learning  to cope with this and to be honest about it will help your relationship grow.

Making it through

If you make it through at least two weeks with your partner, it is time to move forward with your relationship. Traveling together is a good indication of what the future and potential marriage could look like. But, remember, it is not a terrible thing if you end up breaking up during the trip. Come back with your head held high knowing that you can now move on to the next opportunity.
