With many couples now confined to their homes because of the new coronavirus pandemic, some face new challenges as they adjust to the strain of being stuck together for who-knows-how-long. Here’s how to keep your relationship sane when the walls feel like they’re closing in.
In a time when social distancing has become the new normal, singles are discovering creative ways to find love.

The Manhattan Marriage Bureau, which was still operating and performing weddings earlier this week, officially closed today.
