MANY COUPLES COMMUNICATE BY TEXT OR PHONE ONLY

According to a recent survey, one in 10 of us spends more time talking to our other significant others on the phone or by e-mail than in person.

Increasing workloads are being blamed for couples spending less than an hour a day talking while together, with one in five of us spending just 15 minutes a day chatting in person.

The average couple sends a whopping 1,002 texts and almost 400 emails to each other a year.
Women send more texts with an average of two a day, while 12 percent admitted to sending six or more.

13 percent admitted to going to Facebook to find out what their partner was doing.
