Many of us probably thought we knew everything there was to know about our other half, and then lockdown happened and suddenly we found ourselves enrolled on a crash course of the in's and out's of our significant other.
Working from home with our partners, dealing with new stresses together and changing up our routines has meant that lots of us have uncovered new sides to ourselves, and those we live with.
But it turns out that there is one particular aspect of our partners that lots of us didn't know at all until we found ourselves isolated with them 24-hours a day: what our partners actually do in a day.
New research by Virgin Media found that, a whopping half of us in the UK had no idea what our other halves did during their working days - until now.
Of the 1,500 people surveyed, the extent many of us understood of our partner’s jobs were statements like 'they work in an office' and 'they have lots of meetings'.
However, the number of people feeling more clued up about what their partner does for a living has now dropped by half, thanks to our close working quarters.
32% of us would even describe what our partner’s do as 'interesting'.
'With so many more couples now working from home, it’s funny how many people knew so little about what their other half did for a living - until now.
'Suddenly we’re spending working hours and downtime in the same space and it’s sure to be a learning curve for everyone – whether about the job roles themselves or their partner’s personality,' A Virgin Media spokesperson told Yahoo Style UK.
We'll never again wonder why our partner isn't texting us back during the day, as we now know their working schedule in full.
