Relationships are a bit like orchids – wonderful to have, super cool to show off, but oh my word, they’re hard work. They say love is a verb and that’s the truth. You should always be working to improve your relationship and find common ground with your partner if you wish to enjoy a balanced, fulfilling life. Happily, there are all sorts of fun ways to do so. Case in point – a shared love of sports can be an excellent starting point to strengthen your relationship. 

Here’s how:  

CHEERING FOR THE SAME TEAM 
Do you remember the sense of national unity that permeated the whole of South Africa as we cheered on the Springboks in 1995? There is nothing like cheering on the same team to bind a group of people, or a couple, together. Getting caught up in the excitement is so much fun when you have a buddy doing the same thing. Whether you enjoy rugby, cricket, soccer, netball, fencing, ice skating, pole vaulting, or rhythmic gymnastics doesn’t matter – it’s all about getting behind the same team and cheering for all you’re worth. 

SUPPORTING COMMUNITY SPORTS 
Likewise, making a point of getting involved with community sports is another way of growing stronger as a couple. Whether you choose to play for your town’s rugby and netball teams, or simply show up to support your games, connecting with other couples in your vicinity is a healthy way to integrate with the community at large. Studies have shown that couples with a strong support network are more likely to go the distance, and this is a good way to get yourself one of those.  

COMPETING TOGETHER 
Couples who exercise together often share a wonderful bond that is forged through many hours of hard work and shared determination. When you compete together you walk a fine line of challenging and supporting one another, and it brings a wonderful dynamism to any relationship. However, there are couples who feel that participating in endurance sports could be costly if one of them had to get injured.  

Fortunately, MiFitLife is a MiWayLife product that offers lifestyle benefits designed specifically for athletes. Exclusively available to qualifying athletes, it is aimed at keeping hard-working contenders at the top of their game. MiFitLife cover costly entry fees should you fall ill or get injured, secure lump sum pay-outs to care for injuries whilst training and racing and let you enjoy access of up to 3 million rand in life cover without obtrusive medical underwriting, including countless added benefits. I.e. discounted race entries, coaching and clinics from top performers in your sport, and more!
 
These are just a few of the ways in which a shared love of sport can help you to grow closer as a couple.
