Believing in TV romances 'could harm your relationship'Posted on: September 19, 2012 16:47:55
Lonely hearts who invest heavily in television romances could be impacting their own relationships, one study has claimed.
Researchers surveyed 392 married individuals about their relationship satisfaction, expectations and commitment, as well as finding out about their television-watching habits and beliefs.
The participants were asked to rate how much they agreed with statements such as 'television presents romantic relationships as they really are in life'.
Individuals who felt on-screen partnerships on soaps and sitcoms were an accurate representation of a relationship were more aware of their own partner, the study revealed.
It also identified that the greater people believed television romances were realistic, the higher they thought their relationship 'costs' were, including loss of personal freedom and spare time.
Dr Jeremy Osborn, of Albion College in Michigan, who carried out the research, said the findings showed that "people who believe the unrealistic portrayals on TV are actually less committed to their spouses and think their alternatives to their spouse are relatively attractive".
