Love During Lockdown: Survey Shows How Couples Have Coped
THURSDAY, June 11, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- As U.S. states issued stay-at-home orders in March and April, one of many questions was how couples would fare under lockdown together. Now a new survey offers an initial snapshot: some more arguments, regular declarations of love, and a good dose of same-old, same-old.
The survey included close to 2,300 U.S. adults who were living with their partner when the pandemic hit -- forcing most to hunker down at home.
For some couples, the extra together time caused friction: One-quarter of respondents admitted to more arguments with their partner.
