Science Confirms: Binge-Watching Netflix Is Good for Your Relationship

We recently informed you that couples that drink together stay together. Awesome news.

And now, just a week later, researchers have validated another one of our favorite hobbies--staying in and binge-watching Netflix with our significant other. Hooray!

Per the Journal of Social and Personal Relationships, sharing media like TV shows, books and movies with partners may enhance interdependence and bolster closeness. (C’mon, how could you not get close after four hours of prestige drama and carbohydrates?)

So what we’re saying is, if you two accomplish nothing this weekend other than blowing through the first season of Stranger Things, know that you’re not being lazy; you’re just strengthening your bond.
