Couples Alert!- Have you ever heard of the term the “7 year itch”? A recent UK study conducted for Warner Bros to promote the film, “Hall Pass” in UK theaters discovered couples tolerance for one another has decreased from 7 years to 36 months.
The study identified a list of things that couples acknowledged were annoying and bothered them about their partner. It revealed the longer couples were together, the harder its been to keep the “spark” going.
A list of the top ten everyday passion-killers were the following:
- Weight gain/lack of exercise, 13 percent
- Money & Spend thriftiness, 11 percent
- Anti-social working hours, 10 percent
- Hygiene issues (personal cleanliness), 9 percent
- In-Laws/extended family – too much/too little, 9 percent
- Lack of romance (sex, treats etc.), 8 percent
- Alcohol – drinking too much, 7 percent
- Snoring & anti social bedtime habits, 6 percent
- Lapsed fashion-Same old underwear/clothes, 4 percent
- Bathroom habits – Stray nail cuttings etc., 4 percent.
