This Thursday, March 19, Yann Barthes gave the floor to several specialists in his daily program to discuss the epidemic of the Coronavirus. Thus, the psychiatrist, Christophe Andre, spoke of the understanding between the couples during confinement.
To combat the spread of Covid-19, the government has taken unprecedented steps. Since March 17, 2020, at noon, all French people must remain confined to their homes and this for a period of 15 days, renewable. Only essential travel remains authorized like eating, taking care of yourself, going to work when teleworking is not an option, and doing physical activity alone and near your home. For couples, this confinement period promises to be particularly difficult, especially when they are forced to work from home.
Even if you are very in love, it is not always easy to be glued to your half 24 hours a day. How can you avoid tensions? In China, the divorce rate increased significantly after the period of confinement, which was even more drastic than in France. “Many couples have been locked up for more than a month and this has resulted in latent conflicts”, a civil registrar explained to the Chinese newspaper Global Times, reports CNews. In Wuhan, residents were unable to go outside, even to do their shopping, which was dropped off at their homes. The couples therefore remained locked up at home for weeks.
This Thursday, March 19, Yann Barthes gave the floor to psychiatrist Christophe Andre in Daily to talk about psychology in this period when the morale of the French is severely tested.“Can a couple spend 24 hours a day together?”, first questioned the host of TMC. “No, certainly not. In any case not over time but again it is a crash test for couples “, he explained.
After these few days of confinement, are you already tired of your spouse? Don’t panic, it’s normal! 😅
