More than a third of New Zealanders are concerned their partners are spending too much time on their smartphone. Thirty-nine percent of 2,200 New Zealanders surveyed by 2degrees believe the amount of time being spent on their smartphones is affecting the quality of their relationship. The survey also found more than half of New Zealanders choose their phone or computer if they have to deliver bad news. Relationship expert Dr Anna Martin discusses the issue with Susie Ferguson. She says if smartphone use is affecting your relationships, making technology-free rituals is a good idea.
