Love splits delayed for holidays
People put off splitting with their partner so they do not miss out on a holiday together, according to a survey.
While 9% have postponed a split to still take their trip, 11% admitted breaking up so they could tour as a single person, the poll by travel agent sunshine.co.uk found.
A total of 1,839 adults were asked about holidays they had taken.
Of these, 9% admitted holding off breaking up with a partner so they could still go on a holiday they had booked or planned, while 82% said they had parted ways following the trip, with most splitting up after two weeks.
But 18% said they had carried on with their relationship, with the majority saying the trip had brought them closer together, while others had a change of heart or stayed together due to "habit".
Sunshine.co.uk co-founder Chris Clarkson said: "I can't imagine how awkward it must be to have booked a holiday with your partner, or your partner and their whole family, only to realise just before that you don't want to be in the relationship any more."
