Fry ups and working away from home are secret to happy marriage, survey claims
Recent research found relationships flourish when couples spend five days a month apart from each other
Working away from home and enjoying fry ups are the secrets to a happy marriage.
Relationships flourish when couples spend five days a month apart, research revealed.
Eight in 10 who travel for work put married bliss down to having a break from each other. And 74% think periods of separation fire things up in the bedroom, a poll for Travelodge found.
Many said the treat of a full English or relaxing bath helped ease stress.
Getting freedom on the road allows time for taking a relaxing bath or enjoying a chilled-out drink at the car – things many never get a chance to do at home.
Nearly a fifth of working parents confessed they enjoyed a bit of peace and quiet during a break from looking after the kids.
Of those who travel for their job regularly, 21% said it was a ‘win win’ situation as their partner loved having the house to themselves.
The hotel chain’s Shakila Ahmed said: “Nowadays we can potentially work anywhere thanks to technology which is why business travel is becoming more essential in our working lives.
“It’s good to see Britons are benefiting from taking regular business trips as it provides a break from the hustle and bustle of family life and provides some much needed me-time.”
