This に is an equivalent of the English preposition 'to' used with certain adjectives, as in:
a problem that is difficult also to him 私
To me, health is the important thing.
In English, I think people usually say "popular among young couples" rather than "popular to young couples". But in Japanese, we can safely use に with 人気. You have to memorize "popular among X" translates to "Xに人気".
