Are You Watching the Super Bowl Game With Your Partner? by Ilissa Banhazl, MFT

Are you Watching The Super bwl Came with your PAre you watching the game with your partner? Is it because you like sports or do you just want to be with your partner? Are you both preparing snacks and cozying up on the sofa together. It’s always good to share your interests.

If you’re not a sports fan you might consider popping in and out to visit you partner as they enjoy the game. He or she may enjoy seeing you but definitely not during an exciting play! Consider watching the commercials and the half time show. Beyoncé is performing.

Your partner may have invited some guys or girls over and they’re in your den watching the game. It’s always good to indulge in the spread they set out. Enjoy the party!

Or, maybe you’ve left the house completely to meet your girlfriends, spend a fun day with your kids, or do something nice for yourself.

Whatever your plans, there are no rules for couples when it comes to Super Bowl. The rules are whatever works for you and your partner. I think that most of us have come to love Super Bowl Sunday in our own personal way. It seems to put people in a festive mood. Unfortunately, that mood won’t last long if you’re team starts losing! You may have to give your partner some space after the game to calm down!!!
