Did you know that an average couple shares the same room for only 4 hours per day? Find study
According to the survey, which involved 2,000 British adults, on average, couples spend almost seven and a half hours together at home, but not in the same room. More than half of the participants cited different working hours as the main culprit for this trend of spending too little time with their partners in the same room. Then 45 percent of the participants blamed their different interests for preventing them from spending quality time together with their partner in the same room. Also, 30 percent of the participants do not go to bed at the same time because they have different hours.
Another surprising observation made by the survey is that when couples are together in the same room for a long time, they don’t always get along as expected. Common issues of disagreement between couples are controlling the room temperature, the brightness of the lights, and who would be sitting on which side of the couch!
While the survey cannot be taken as a comprehensive study because it only examines 2,000 British adults, this can nevertheless be taken as a revelation. There is no doubt that different working hours, interests and bedtime have forced couples to shorten the time they spend in the same room. Let’s not forget that making a relationship work takes a lot of work. Couples must take time out of their busy schedule and make conscious efforts to spend quality time with each other, without which it would not be possible to have a healthy and happy relationship.
