Bruce Grey Simcoe Declares Hump Day for Couples as Increasing Number of Couples Spend Less Time Together

Region offers spectacular activities to rekindle time-strained relationships

  • Younger couples, ages 18 to 44 are twice as likely to spend less time together when compared with couples ages 55+
  • Couples in the GTA are two times more likely than those from other regions to say that they rarely spend time together
  • One in three couples would choose to go on an overnight getaway given the opportunity to spend more time together

TORONTO, Feb. 15, 2012 /CNW/ - A recent study has found that one in four couples in Ontario spend less time together than at the onset of their relationship. Further, the survey reveals that finding time for one another is particularly challenging among younger couples, with those aged 18 to 44 struggling to spend quality time together.

"Despite being in committed relationships, young couples are finding it difficult to balance work obligations and their social lives with making time for one another," said Kimberly Moffit, a renowned relationship expert based in Toronto. "For a relationship to be successful in today's busy world, you have to remember what got you two to where you are - so toss aside the smartphones, turn off the computers and make the effort to have real conversations."

When given the opportunity to spend more time together, the study also found that couples in Ontario prefer overnight getaways and the chance to experience something new together. "So why not redefine 'hump day' by taking a day off during the week to head out for some skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing or even ice fishing - and let the rekindling unfold?" said Moffit.

Moffit notes that there are unlimited activities couples can do together to help strengthen relationships - from romantic rendezvous such as savouring mugs of the finest hot chocolate by an open fire to the more exhilarating outings like taking in breathtaking views while snowshoeing across Ontario's longest suspension bridge. And when it comes to planning, they need not look further than their own backyard, where couples can experience the best activities winter has to offer.
