Wedding gift registry Honeyfund has released data showing that couple that travel together, stay together. Honeyfund surveyed 1,000 married Americans and had them rate their marital satisfaction Excellent, Good, or Not So Good. Of the 'Excellent' category, 84% stated that they regularly travel together. Overall, couples that had taken three or more romantic trips post honeymoon rated their relationship as either "Good" or "Excellent." For the "Not So Good" category, 78% reported not traveling regularly. Couples rated their #1 reason for traveling "spending quality tie together." Sara Margulis, CEO and co-founder of Honeyfund, states that "Our recent survey shoes that honeymoon-style travel may be key to keeping a love relationship going."
