Spouse Material? Travel Together

in Travel

[via Time] The oft-married Zsa Zsa Gabor once said that you never really know a man until you’ve divorced him. I disagree. A far more pleasant (and less litigious) way to figure out whether or not you and your beliked are compatible is to hit the road.

Whether it’s a five-star holiday in Kuala Lumpur or a backpacking trek through the Blue Ridge Mountains, traveling à deux is the quickest way to get to know somebody. There’s no room for pretense after she’s heard you screech over a sand snake, and politesse quickly falls to the wayside after one of you gets hit with Montezuma’s revenge on a romantic getaway. Traveling together can be a dealbreaker or a dealmaker.

Do you have a travel story that convinced you to marry your husband or wife?
