The COVID-19 pandemic has not only tested the stability of individuals far and wide, but it has greatly affected Black love and relationships. It has forced couples to be reintroduced and unavoidably locked down with their spouse unexpectedly during these unprecedented times. This severe change in atmosphere and control caused otherwise happy couples to experience shifts in their mental, emotional, physical, occupational, spiritual, and social wellness and this impacted their relationships with their spouse. Unfortunately, the sudden change resulted in an alarming increase in divorce rates by 34% during the pandemic.
