Best new trends in cosmopolitan relationships

Relationship norms are changing as rapidly as the world around us. As we enter the second half of the second decade of the century, we have more chances to connect or disconnect digitally and more choices than ever before.

Couple Messaging Apps

Technology often gets a bad rap when it comes to relationships; but there are ways that technology can enhance your real-life connection. Many more apps designed to help couples communicate with each other. An app like Couple gives you the ability to keep all your moments more private. You can text, share photos, videos, share calendars, plan an evening out or send live sketches to your partner, like if you want to draw a pretty flower to make up for something. All of the content you upload ends up flowing like it is own timeline of your relationship.

More of social media

Let us face it, social media adds an awkward and unfortunate layer to a breakup. You have to figure out if you should unfollow, untag, hide, or block your ex and you may drive yourself crazy seeing pictures of him or her loving life in your news feed. To address this, Facebook rolled out a new breakup tool at the end of last year that makes moving on a little easier, and many users will be thankful for it this year. The network now allows users to change their relationship status privately and prompts them to unfollow and untag where necessary so that they don’t have to worry about managing their digital profile while moving on IRL.

Money Matters

According to recent research, approximately 25 percent of married women out-earn their male partners—up from four percent in the 1960s. If you and your partner have widely disparate incomes, it is tough to feel like financial equals and it is easy to feel like the person earning more wields more financial power.

Make sure to give each person’s money meaning—especially the person earning less. For example, the person with the smaller paycheck can save for long-term goals in the relationship, like as a down payment on a home or your next big vacation. It will feel like a major contribution and can be a source of financial pride.

An Increase in Fertility Treatments Has Impact

Chances are that you or someone you know has had a fertility treatment or has considered one for the future. The face of motherhood is changing as many first time moms are older and better educated than ever before and fertility treatments aren’t only for couples—the number of singles are freezing their eggs is on the rise . This trend will continue and has an impact on all relationships, from romantic to professional. Millions of women undergoing treatment will have to navigate who to tell and will discover how to balance work, life and love.
