Mum and dad are sad that they are unable to spend some quality time together.
A new survey has revealed that parents spend an average of only 15 minutes together in a day.
The poll conducted over 4,500 people revealed that the time spent together while relaxing, chatting or having sex counts up to less than ten days a year, reports The Sun.
They spend five minutes together in the morning and ten minutes at night before going to sleep.
About an average number of parents would get in a babysitter once a month for a night out.
On the other hand only once in a year are they able to spend a single night away from home without the kids.
Two thirds of couples in the poll admitted they were sad at the lack of quality time together
