68% of People Would Consider Breaking Up with a Significant Other . . . If They Forgot an Anniversary?
Chattanooga, Tennessee—(Wise Brother)
People take anniversaries VERY seriously. Or at least ONE PERSON in every relationship takes them very seriously.
In a new survey, 82% of people admit they have forgotten their anniversary at some point in a relationship. But most of that happens to couples who are still dating, as opposed to those who are married.
And 68% of those surveyed say they’d consider temporarily OR permanently breaking up with a significant other if they forgot a major relationship milestone.
(If that seems intense, this is a good time to mention that the survey was conducted by Dating.com . . . so it’s possible that they’ve already acted on it, and that’s why they’re single again.) (???)
Not surprisingly, more than 80% of those who admit to forgetting are MEN.
And it isn’t just anniversaries. 43% of people have forgotten their partner’s birthday before . . . and 37% forgot to plan for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day.
