Of all respondents 45% said self-isolation had already put strain on their relationship. 34% of those that were going to get engaged this year said the time they’ve had to spend with their partner has made them less likely to want to propose or get proposed to. Of these respondents, 63% were male and 37% were female.
Those who weren’t planning on proposing, or currently had plans to get married, were asked if spending isolation with their other half had made them consider it, with just 8% saying it had.
It was found 18% of men admitted they are more likely to consider an affair when self-isolation is over, meanwhile 16% of women had similar views. It was also uncovered that 45% of Britons would no longer consider a marriage abroad.
Two thirds (66%) have noticed annoying attributes in their other half that they hadn’t noticed before. The top annoyance listed by these respondents was ‘disregard for personal hygiene’ (55%), followed by ‘inability to clean up after themselves’ (47%) and ‘talking through TV shows/whilst working etc.’ (41%).
