A new study found that 75 percent of Americans who live with their spouse or partner bring their phone to bed with them. And those people bringing their phones to bed at night are twice as likely to spend time on their phones than they are to get romantic with their significant other. In fact, being on their phones was the number one activity for couples during the last hour before bedtime. And this is sad … 25 percent of those surveyed said the very last thing they see before closing their eyes at night is their phone – not their significant other. More results:
- Couples spend an average of three nights a week watching separate screens while in bed.
- 55 percent of couples say they feel they’re missing out on quality time with their partner because of phone use.
- 35 percent say their sex life has been affected because of their or their spouse’s bedtime phone use.
- 33 percent have discussed the need to reduce phone use in the bedroom to stay better connected.
- 93 percent say they keep their phones within arm’s reach at night.
- 10 percent keep their phones under their pillow. (SWNS Digital)
