“More than 1 in 5 adults (22%) said they had experienced a complete breakdown of a relationship (e.g., children, friends, relatives, parents, colleagues, co-workers, or neighbours) in the past year. Young adults were most likely to report a relationship breakdown (35% vs 12% of adults aged 60 and over), as were people with a diagnosed mental health condition (37% vs 19%). People living with children (27% vs 20%), people with lower household income (24% vs 20%), people from ethnic minority groups (36% vs 20%), women (25% vs 19%), and people living in urban areas (23% vs 19%) were also more likely to report a relationship breakdown.
However, most adults have said that the quality of their relationships has been about the same as usual over the past year. There have also been some improvements in relationship quality, with over 1 in 4 respondents (28%) saying that the quality of their relationship with their spouse or partner has improved.”
