CAN A HOBBY HELP OR HINDER A RELATIONSHIP?

Man and WomanNow, depending on who you listen to, having a regular hobby can either make or break a relationship. Well, if you believe the experts, then spending some time on your own interests can occasionally alleviate any stress built-up between you and your other half. But if you believe the following survey conducted by OnBuy? In that case, a contradictory viewpoint is also likely!





You see, several weeks ago, our pals over at the OnBuy Arts and Crafts department decided to carry out a survey in order to discover the individual tastes of both men and women. Or to be more specific about it, what people generally enjoy doing when left to their own devices, such as a hobby, so to speak, and this eventually resulted in the production of the following two lists…


Men Watch TV
Men’s Popular Hobbies
  1. Watching Sport - 86%
  2. Playing Video Games - 73%
  3. Fantasy Sports / E-Sports - 69%
  4. Betting / Gambling - 68%
  5. Golf - 51%
  6. Boxing - 31%
  7. Restoring Cars - 25%
  8. Model Building - 19%
  9. Playing An Instrument - 16%
  10. Beer Brewing - 11%

Shopping
Women’s Popular Hobbies
  1. Shopping - 92%
  2. Gardening - 74%
  3. Reading - 53%
  4. Meditating - 45%
  5. Martial Arts / Self Defence - 42%
  6. Singing - 39%
  7. Knitting - 38%
  8. Baking - 32%
  9. Flower Arranging - 28%
  10. Making Jewellery - 26%

But if truth be told, this wasn’t enough for the guys and girls at the A and C, because they also wanted to know how these hobbies affected their relationships (affected, with a capital ‘A’). So after some much-needed deliberation, they carefully asked the 1,087 men and the 1,090 women surveyed, one, more, question: 'Have you ever divorced or separated from a partner due to the amount of time spent on a hobby?' And this resulted in 41% saying ‘Yes’,  59% saying ‘No’, as well as the production of the subsequent two lists…
