Hate Sports? 5 Tips For 'Football Widows' [EXPERT]
Football season can take a toll on couples. Here's how to get through it together.

#5: Give football a chance. Maybe you absolutely hate it, but maybe you've not really ever sat down and watched a game. Learn a bit about the game or research and find out something that you find interesting about your partner's favorite team or player.

Try watching at least part of the game with your partner and be sure to notice how much enthusiasm he (or she) shows doing so. How To Handle Your Jealous Spouse

If you watch a football game or learn more about the sport and still don't like it, that's okay. Remind yourself about how rich the world — and your relationship — is, partly because everyone is unique and everyone has different likes and interests. Now, remind yourself of how wonderful it is that you can share passion and connection with this unique partner in your life.

That's something to cheer about!
