Couples row most during shopping
For one in two adults, shopping with their other half is nothing less than a nightmare, research has revealed.
Around one in six of the 2000 adults polled admitted their relationship has ended - or come close to ending - over a mid-aisle bust-up.
One in four said they have stormed out of a store and left their partner standing alone after an argument.
"It can be easier to shop on your own, especially if you and your partner have a different approach to making purchases," Andy Oldham of Quidco UK, which commissioned the research, said.
"It can be difficult to agree with your partner on everything, especially when you are planning to spend a lot of money on something for your home that you are both going to share.
"Perhaps couples need to spend a bit more time doing their research before they head to the shops, then they can both have a clear idea of what they both do and #65533; or don't want.
"Doing your research might also mean you find better deals or money-off codes which might help save a few more rows about how much to spend."
The study, which involved only people in a relationship, found 61 percent have had a disagreement while shopping with their other half, with 48 percent putting the rows down to whether or not the item was "essential".
Four out of 10 blamed them on one person taking too long to make a decision, while 35 percent struggle agreeing on how much to spend.
Other causes of rows include disagreeing on a brand, appearance and even size of an item.
Clothes were found to be the shopping item most likely to lead to couples falling out, followed by food, a new sofa and where to go on holiday.
