According to the Belgian Immigration Office, partners can get a short visit (90 days) in Belgium if they “prove a relationship of at least one year, during which they have physically seen each other physically at least twice, for at least 20 days.” IBZ also states that “If a visit has had to be cancelled due to travel restrictions (Covid-19), evidence of the forced cancellation of that visit may be taken into consideration during the planned new visit.” You might be able to get a travel certificate before travelling, such as the one offered by the Belgian consulates in the United States, by contacting your local Belgian consulate.
