It seems that the seven-year-itch has evolved along with our stressful and faster times: the tipping point where couples begin taking each other for granted is now the “three-year-glitch”.
The faster-paced lifestyle of 21st century inhabitants has caused 36 months to be the time when stress levels in relationships peak. This is the time, apparently, when “pink passes” and single holidays from partners and spouses are resorted to.
This is according to a survey of 2 000 British adults in steady relationships, and also comes ahead of the new film “Hall Pass”, which features a group of men who’ve been given a month off to do anything they’d like as single men again.
After three years, sex decreases, those little things that were once endearing are now annoying, the compliments decrease, and individual space becomes more important.
Are you in a long-term relationship? And what have you found?
