As social media becomes an increasingly more intrinsic part of our lives, it's hard to tell where the line starts and stops.
When did it become okay to be on your phone while at the same time watching TV? At the same time as having a conversation with someone? On the LOO?!
But a study has found that we now spend more time on our phones scrolling endlessly through social media than we do with our other halves.
According to the research undertaken on behalf of McCain, one in six (British) people believes that their relationship is suffering because they spend more time interacting with celebrities on social media than they do with each other.
Just under half of respondents admitted that they feel they take their partner for granted.
As a result, more than three quarters wish they spent more time having proper conversations with their other half with no distractions.
A third of people think they spend more time interacting with their partner through social messaging apps like WhatsApp and Facebook.
Couples revealed they get just an hour and 10 minutes of quality time together every day, but spend one hour and 41 minutes of time engaging with celebs on social sites.
WHAT is the world coming to?!
