Pandemics test governments, families, and often, relationships.

For some couples living together, this period has been a true test of time, strength and patience.

Some have found themselves living together during this quarantine period, while others have suddenly found themselves in a long-distance relationship due to containment orders and closed borders.

Dreading the long time they would have to spend apart, some people moved in together, bringing forward decisions they had postponed for months, perhaps years, and starting to know each other deeper.

For the single ones, this period has been a time of self-reflection and focusing on themselves, evaluating their needs and wants in a relationship.

In this podcast, we explore love in the time of Covid-19 with two couples and a singleton who detail how the pandemic has quickly transformed every aspect of their dating life.

We also hear from sociologist and relationship therapist, Dr. Ken Ouko, who gives us advice on maintaining sanity and why it may even be good to be single during this period.
