A new study reveals that watching Netflix together is good for the relationship.

Here is another reason to binge watch Netflix. Watching Netflix is good for relationships. A new study conducted by the University of Aberdeen found that couples watching Netflix together have an improved relationship.

"Watching TV with a partner or watching a movie you both like is a really easy way to improve relationship quality and anyone can do it at any time so if this is something that is good for relationships, it might help us identify an intervention that can improve relationship quality," explains Dr Sarah Gomillion.

In the study published in the Journal of Social and Personal Relationships, the more frequently couples shared ‘media’, like box-sets and movies with their partner, the higher the couples rated their relationship quality and commitment to the relationship.

Dr Sarah Gomillion, who led the study, said: "Relationships are a very big contributor to our physical and psychological health so understanding how relationships can be better and how you can improve relationships can also improve our physical and psychological health. What these results suggest to us is that when people have a hole in their social network that they share with their partners – they might become more motivated to share media as a way to compensate for that deficit."

This study is a great argument to watch Netflix and not go out.
