Seems like an instanced MMO might be a good thing to try. Something like Pocket Legends or one of STS's other offerings depending on your taste in themes. You guys could just play private games together.

Hi,
I'm the dev of Bedlam MMORPG. We are very couple-friendly and have a more grown-up community than most MMO's, including couples. Players can form parties, hunt and explore the game together. We actually have in-game marriage, and the depth of our world puts games like Pocket Legends in, uhm, its pocket.

Heroes and Castles. You can even send messages to each other in-game.

Outwitters rules

Definitely Outwitters. My son and I play as a team in 2-on-2 matches and we are having a blast. We also play solo against other people.

If playing as partners, I would recommend taking each game as a learning experience. Also you can chat between yourselves about strategy as you get more into it.

It is great to be able to play with and against people from all over the world and not have to worry about time zones. Also as you improve, you will move up the ranks and have harder competition.

I third Outwitters, there is a point where it does get a bit repetative, but if you have someone you know and get along with well, 2vs2 becomes a blast

Can not believe not one person has suggested Clash of Clans yet....

This would be a great game for you guys because, you would create or join the same clan and be able to communicate with each other flawlessly. Its also a great game and one of the few games on the App Store that is completely free with no advertisements. Not to say you can't spend money on it. Supercell makes millions off of this game...

Because it's horrible. The anti-game.

Junk Jack X would be good though, build yourselves a virtual home together and go exploring, hand in hand. Die by each other's side.

This. Clash of clans isn't really a "multiplayer game". It's more a log on once every day and collect stuff game. JJX would most likely be a blast if you two are into those type of games.
