Remember when online dating sounded weird and pathetic, but now that stigma isn't even a little bit of a thing anymore? In time, apps that aim to help couples will be treated in the same way. But it's only a matter of time before apps that help us with everything that comes after you stop dating around and commit to a relationship become normalized too. A new wave of apps that offer marriage counseling, conflict resolution, intimacy building, scheduling and exploration are looking to keep the spark alive in your relationship. Lasting is a marriage counseling app that you and your partner learn about then answer questions around concepts ranging from emotional cues to forgiveness to finances. Aside from daily reminders that help you apply those lessons, there are also guided exercises on mindfulness, nurturing, and conflict. Relish is an app for couples of all commitment levels looking to deepen connection, explore romantic possibilities, and build strong foundations. Premium access pairs you with a coach who asks for weekly check-ins and gives recommendations geared toward your particular situation. While many of the features of these couples apps are free, must charge a premium of up to $15 a month. While not a replacement for couples therapy, it may be a step in the right direction your relationship needs.
