Seven In Ten Adults Think Their Partner Ignores Them On Purpose

They say communication is key to any relationship, and a new study shows seven in ten people think their partner has selective hearing. Respondents said on average, men “will not hear” what their partner is saying seven times per week, while women do the same six times per week. More than half of the U.K. adults polled said they were concerned their partner’s selective hearing could be due to genuine hearing loss, and forty percent said they know for sure that their partner has legitimate hearing issues. It’s important to get hearing issues checked out because hearing loss can lead to isolation, depression, and has even been linked to dementia.
