At Bowes-Lyon Partnership we work with accomplished professionals who often lead busy lives both at work and in their free time. Some members have attributed the failure of past relationships partly down to having spent too little time with their other half, often as a result of busy professional lives.

So it came as little surprise to the team at Bowes-Lyon Partnership to read in The Huffington Post that a study by found that a third of couples spend less than 30 minutes of quality time together a day and 3 in 10 feel their relationship is suffering due to the lack of ‘couple time’.

The average British couple spends 2% of their normal, working day in each others company as they push their relationship to the back burner to make time for the daily grind of work, household chores and childcare.

The majority of 2,000 Brits questioned in the study by felt that their relationship would improve if they had more quality time together. Given the chance, over half would be happy with the simple things, like having an uninterrupted meal together at home or cuddling up watching a film.

But while 6 in 10 would happily welcome the opportunity to properly talk to their partner for at least one hour and 25 minutes a day, 16% admit to getting no quality time together with their partner at all.

Nearly half of the disgruntled couples revealed that they don’t receive any romantic gestures anymore as their other half is too busy.

At Bowes-Lyon Partnership, we ensure that all new members are ready to make the time to dedicate to finding a new partner and also to building and maintaining a healthy relationship.
