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:

  1. Weight gain/lack of exercise, 13 percent
  2. Money & Spend thriftiness, 11 percent
  3. Anti-social working hours, 10 percent
  4. Hygiene issues (personal cleanliness), 9 percent
  5. In-Laws/extended family – too much/too little, 9 percent
  6. Lack of romance (sex, treats etc.), 8 percent
  7. Alcohol – drinking too much, 7 percent
  8. Snoring & anti social bedtime habits, 6 percent
  9. Lapsed fashion-Same old underwear/clothes, 4 percent
  10. Bathroom habits – Stray nail cuttings etc., 4 percent.

Do you believe this applies to couples here in the U.S.?
