Valentine's Day may be long gone, and the time you almost forgot your anniversary has passed, but a study from Travelocity conducted earlier this year proves that you'll always have a reason to go on that romantic getaway, especially now that spring is in the air.

In case you missed it, the study found that 56 percent of couples viewed traveling together as a crucial aspect to keeping their relationships alive, Travel + Leisure reports.


The findings also echo a previous survey from the U.S. Travel Association, which discovered that almost two-thirds of couples thought going on a weekend getaway sparked more romance than receiving glamorous gifts or even jewelry. These couples who traveled together also had a higher rate of their relationship lasting more than five years and considered themselves to have a better sex life than couples who didn't travel.
