Feeling confident in your relationship? Maybe this V-Day you want to give your love a little stress test.
The big picture: We've assembled a short list of places where you and your partner can learn exactly what your relationship can survive.
🛃 Airport terminal: You're bleary-eyed, anxious, hauling several bags, and possibly hungry and dehydrated — and the success of your journey depends on reading signs that hang from the ceiling. Now add in the joy of delays and cancellations.
🚘 Parking garage: It's a cement maze where you leave one of your most valuable possessions — which also doubles as your ride home. What could go wrong?
