A new survey says that despite living in an age of instant communication where people can be reached all over the world, one in four couples in UK speak to their partner for less than 10 minutes a day.

Dubbed as 'conversation coma', increasing workloads are blamed for the downturn in people talking to their loved ones.

According to the survey of 2,000 people commissioned by Bigham's ready meals, four percent of people completely ignore their partners and another one in four cannot remember the last time they sat down to dinner together.

A total of two in five people admitted that they didn't want to cook dinner and eat together when they returned home from work. Just under a half questioned wished they had more energy to cook.

Two-thirds said they preferred spending time on social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook in the evenings rather than sharing a home-cooked meal.

One in five said they would eat on the couch in front of the television every night rather than at the table.owever, 65 percent of those surveyed said that they class spending quality time with their loved one as a "priority" and 38 percent feel guilty about the lack of time they spend together.

A further seven out of ten people claimed a "night in" was the best way to spend an evening with a partner.

"It is shocking to think that the majority of UK couples appear to be in a 'conversation coma', too tired to cook on a weekday evening and faced with wide range of distractions when they get home," the Daily Mail quoted Charlie Bigham, who runs Bigham's ready meals as saying.
