Couples want closeness for many reasons, but the central idea is a validation of their couple hood. No one likes to feel in it all alone. And many couples want to find ways to get closer to each other that reflect who they are as people. They can do things they enjoy together, but there are also ways of getting closer and showing closeness that don’t have to be things that are done together. Emotional closeness is inside and can help a couple feel together even when they are separated physically.
