'Third of Brits spend less than 30 minutes a day with partner'
A third of British couples get less than 30 minutes quality time together each day, according to a poll of 2,000 people.
Three in 10 people believe their relationship is suffering because they don’t see their other half enough and 89 per cent reckon they would get on far better if they indulged in more quality time, according to the survey for eatwelshlamb.co.uk.
Factors such as the household chores, work, the children and even the television prevent couples from communicating regularly, the survey found.
The study shows six in 10 couples would simply welcome the opportunity each day to talk to their partner and find out if they are okay or not. Ideally, couples would like to have at least one hour and 25 minutes alone together daily.
Dinner is only eaten together four times a week, the survey found, and for 15 per cent, cuddling up on the sofa at the end of the day is the only time they get in each other’s company. A third of those polled acknowledged that once the working day is over, and the children are in bed, they probably spend far too much time finishing off the household chores.
But 54 per cent wish they could spend less time cooking and cleaning and more time with their partner.
