How to survive a long distance relationship when you're madly in love

Bring out your phones, stat

We've all been in that unfortunate situation when we've been separated from our significant other. They could be miles apart for days that stretch into long, drawn-out months that never seem to end. According to this study, 75% of the couples revealed they had experienced a long distance relationship. And while distance may make the heart grow fonder, it cannot substitute the warm feeling you get when you embrace your partner after a stressful day. However, Bollywood's newly-married couples, Sonam Kapoor-Anand Ahuja and Anushka Sharma-Virat Kohli, have figured out how to survive a long distance relationship — by showing their constant love and support for each other on social media. 

Take Anushka, for example — given her busy schedule, the actor couldn't be there to boost Virat's morale for the Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Kings XI Punjab match last night in Indore. So, she took to Instagram and Twitter to show that she was present...virtually.

 

 

The actor, who is reportedly shooting for her upcoming film Zero in the US, had a makeshift screen in front of her as she cheered her team on.

She was barely able to contain her happiness when the team was almost winning.

Which brings us to Sonam and Anand. The newly-married couple missed their honeymoon because of Sonam's commitments at the Cannes Film Festival, and though the actor is truly enjoying herself, she is terribly missing her husband.

The cutest part has to be Anand openly reciprocating her feelings with posts of his own:
