How much 'us' time do you get in a week?

How much 'us' time do you get as a couple in a week?

Working, sorting the kids out, catching up on household chores, how much time does that leave for quality time with your partner? We're guessing not a lot.

1481

New research says that British families are getting on average just 169 minutes of quality time together in a typical working week, with nearly a quarter (23%) saying they get less than one hour of 'us time' together between Monday to Friday.

The research by HouseTrip.com, examined how British families spend time together and found that when it comes to taking advantage of stolen moments together as a couple, parents are settling for spending those precious moments watching television (65%) over talking (33%) or having sex (31%). Does this sound like life in your house?

Nearly two thirds (60%) of parents say the thing they are most looking forward to about their next holiday is spending quality time with their children. However, hopes of rekindling the romance on holiday seem distant with three quarters (76%) of Brits admitting that "romance takes a back seat when holidaying with kids".
