Financial worries or work-related issues are traditional reasons for stress in a relationship but a new survey conducted by online retailers Crucial.com found that two in five Americans blame the time spent on computers to be a source of stress in their relationship.

Over 2,600 people took part in the survey which also found that nearly a quarter (23 percent) say that their partners spend a lot of time in front of their computers.

Computer performance is also a major source of stress with 21 percent saying that they get more stressed out when their computer freezes or hangs than when they are involved in an argument.

Says Dr John Gray, who is a relationship expert and the author of 'Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus', "These findings are fascinating because of the changing dynamic between people and their computers. I have a lot of couples coming to me about issues that cause tension in their relationships. Of course, finances and job stress are the usual suspects, but I am also hearing more concern about time spent on the computer."
