The survey, conducted by relationship advice charity Relate, questioned more than 2000 adults of all age groups across the country and found that more than 20 percent of the volunteers between 35 to 44 years of age admitted to being lonely with majority of them saying that their relationships would improve if they worked fewer hours at their jobs.

More than 40 percent of 35 to 44-year-olds said that they had been cheated on by their partners with 22 percent admitting that they suffered from depression because of their bad relationships. Lead researcher Claire Tyler said the survey proves that mid life crisis starts early for Britons.

"Traditionally we associate the midlife crisis with people in their late 40s to 50s, but the report reveals that this period could be reaching people earlier than we would expect", she said.
