Common sense says it’s safer to adventure with a buddy, and chances are, if you’re in a committed relationship, that buddy looks a lot like a wife or boyfriend—which is great if both of you are equally passionate and experienced in the same outdoor activities.

Fat chance.

Adventuring with your “better half” is going to take a little trial and error. At best, you’ll become each other’s most trusted partners, the ones you wouldn’t imagine exploring without.
