The number of long distance marriages has also been on the rise in recent years.These distances may be more likely to be the result of commuting and other work-related factors that may be too far away from home for a daily commute that may cost more than it is worth for the job.
On average, most people in long distance relationships tend to be at least 125 miles away from each other.
They tend to visit each other less than twice a month and call each other at least once every three days.
Not only are they a pain to maintain, but they also tend to be destined for failure in the long run. This number was more or less the same with an estimation of about 14 million in 2018.
Furthermore, of that 14 million, almost four to four and a half million of these couples are in a non-marital relationship.
For instance, the overwhelming majority of long distance relationships, more than two-thirds end when the couple does not plan for changes in the relationship.
