More than 10 percent of British couples attempt to maintain the romance in their relationship by sleeping in different bedrooms, a new study reveals.
In addition, a third of couples take separate holidays from one another, and over a fifth often have "time out" to do separate things, such as stay with friends.
It also emerged that 39 percent of couples believe their relationship is healthier because they have independence in their home life, Daily Mail reported Thursday.
The study by Esure home insurers also found that one in 25 couples has even been taking a lengthy "sabbatical" from each other.
The survey questioned more than 1,000 people aged 18 or over.
