Couples Who Game Together, Stay Together
We’ve all heard about the challenges that couples face when it relates to iGaming. This often occurs when only one side of the relationship is a player. But what if both partners decide to form an allegiance in the virtual world?
No matter the partners’ age and the relationship duration, it is proven that gaming can positively impact relationships. For instance, 88% of gamer couples said that the main benefit of playing together is that it allows them to spend more time with one another, and 71% believe that it helped them build stronger connections with each other.
And that’s not all; being in a committed relationship also benefits the gaming performance, which is true for 56% of couples who often share game tactics and tips with each other.
If you are worried about being in a long-distance relationship, then don’t be. According to the findings, 53% of gamers in a relationship said that gaming helped them increase trust in one another, and guess what: League of Legends is the most played in long distances to keep the flame burning!
Furthermore, gaming is most commonly a mutual interest in couples between 35 and 54 - That explains why 68% of couples gaming together are married!
