Mobile-phone addiction is causing relationship problems in Britain, claims a new research.
According to the survey commissioned by musicMagpie, 41 percent of British couples bicker about the amount of time spent on their mobile phones, with one in 10 admitting they frequently argue about it.
As this habit has been causing tension among couples, 28 percent of people admitted that they actively hide how much they use their phone from their partner.
A shocking 84 percent couples admitted they wouldn't leave their phones at home or on a romantic break or date night.
Toni Mackenzie, Psychotherapist at Inner Depths commented on this phenomenon and said that this habit gives out an unspoken message that the person they are with is less important and not deserving of their full attention which irks them.
