Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt went on a weekend celebrity getaway, just the two of them. According to UsMagazine.com, the famous couple were spotted at a hotel in Beverly Hills having a lovely time together on Saturday, Apr. 5, without their six children, Pax, 10, Zahaa, 9, Shiloh, 7, twins Vivienne and Knox, 5, and Maddox, 12. The engaged twosome were not shy about showing their affection towards one another, even entering the hotel arm-in-arm. This much-needed private outing is well-deserved, as it comes after Jolie, 38, and Pitt, 50 had been a part for a few months because of work. 

Famous couple Pitt and Jolie recognize the value of alone time with each other. What are some reasons it’s important to spend quality time with your partner?

Cupid’s Advice:

Whether you’re part of a famous couple or not, finding time to spend with your lover can be difficult. After all, life gets in the way! However, no matter how chaotic and hectic your schedule may be, it’s important to get that much-needed private time with your other half. Cupid has some love advice on why you need to spend one-on-one time with your partner:

1. It keeps the spark alive: Every relationship needs a strong emotional and physical connection. Physical separation leads to emotional separation, so if you’re not spending time in each other’s company, it can lead to a break-up. Plan some date ideas together and do something fun or new; that way, you will be making time for each and satisfying each others needs.

2. It strengthens your relationship: It’s nice to go out and spend time as a family with your kids or your friends, but if you want the bond between the two of you to stay strong, alone time is needed too. Couples need time away from their daily distractions to catch up on what’s going in each other’s lives.
