The Way We Are Now: The State of the UK's Relationships 2014

Source: Relate (UK)

From Executive Summary:

The Way We Are Now report offers plenty to celebrate – the vast majority of people enjoy good quality relationships at home, work and play. We find that four in five people (85%) enjoy a good relationship with their partner, 81% of women and 73% of men describe their friendships as good or very good, and three-fifths of people (59%) have a good relationship with their boss.

On the flip side, we also see some concerning results. A quarter of people (24%) are dissatisfied with their sex lives, and one in five people (19%) never or rarely felt loved in the two weeks before the survey. The results also show that many employees are struggling to find the right balance between work and family life – more than one in three people (35%) said that their bosses believe the most productive employees put work before family, and over a fifth of people think their employers would like them to be available 24/7.
