The Highway Of Love: Road Trips And Relationships
King And Queen Of The Road
No one wants a backseat driver, unless of course they like to have sex and feed you french fries from the passenger seat. Here's a new study that shows a road trip could be the key to paving your way to a better relationship.
Many people in serious, long-term relationships can't help but think of a road trip with their loved one as nothing more than hours of arguments over where to go, where to eat, where to sleep, and where to finally end it all and jump off a cliff.
But our friends at YourTango have teamed up with Ford Motor Company to conduct a study of relationships on the road, and the results show it could do us all some good.
Of 1,000 people surveyed, 91 percent say they've taken a road trip together, and 84 percent of them say that the trip strengthened their relationship. Other numbers, however, show people like to push buttons.
- 32 percent tell the driver they're driving too fast
- 27 percent tell them they're going the wrong way
- 22 percent tell them they're not paying enough attention to their surroundings/traffic
- 15 percent chide them for driving too slowly
