What's more, just 11% described themselves as head-over-heels in love with their significant other while one in five said their days of being "in love" are over after spending a considerable amount of time together, according to a survey by YouGov, an international internet-based British market research firm.

"The partnership is less about love and affection and more about ease and dependability," researchers found.
