According to Business Insider, about half of all marriages end in divorce.

To strengthen her relationship, author Jennifer Still admits that she and her partner spends time away from each other.

She revealed four ways that having time apart from her partner has kept her marriage solid including:

1. "We can keep our own identities outside of the relationship"

Why is this important? Jennifer explains, "By indulging our own interests, we remain two unique people with our own thoughts, opinions, and feelings rather than a homogeneous pair with a singular identity."

2. "We have more to talk about when we're together"

Jennifer adds, "If you're attached at the hip 24/7, you already know what's happening and you quickly run out of conversational topics. Thankfully, this hasn't happened for us."
