Study: Long commutes drive couples apart
NEW YORK (WABC) -- A long commute to work can put couples on a rocky marital road.
Researchers at Umea University in Sweden looked at 2 million couples over 10 years.
They found that people who travel 45 minutes or longer each way are 40 percent more likely to split from their spouse or partner, than those who work closer to home.
And the break-up typically happens in the first years of the long commute.
