New research has suggested that as many of six out of ten couples are unhappy in their relationship and would like to make improvements.
According to a survey by UKDating.com, four in ten people have considered leaving their partner, while one in ten no longer trusts their other half.
Fortunately, improvements can be made in all of these areas if couples are willing to invest a little time and effort.
“The sad fact of the matter is that when people first start dating they go to great lengths to appeal to each other by being sexy, romantic and giving,” said UKDating.com spokesman David Brown.
“Once the honeymoon period is over, it is all too easy to start taking each other for granted.”
Separate research carried out recently by the National Sleep Foundation in the US revealed that many couples are simply too tired to have sex at the end of the day.
