American Couples Spend 5.5 Days Per Year Deciding What To Eat

It’s perhaps the most difficult daily decision a couple has to make: what to eat for dinner. A new survey of 2,000 people in committed relationships by restaurant discovery mobile app Seated finds the average couple spends 132 hours per year deciding what to eat. They ask, “What do you want to eat?” 365 times a year, which results in two hours and 32 minutes a week of negotiating on what type of meal to eat. Not surprisingly, the most controversial meal time is dinner, with 46 percent of respondents admitting this is the meal they debate about most. Furthermore, 24 percent say their partner usually takes forever to decide what to eat, and 31 percent say their significant other claims not to be hungry and then takes food from their plate. The average couple goes out to eat four times a month and tries a new restaurant at least once a month. (NY Post
