Pass the salt

A recent British study found that the longer couples are married, the less they have to say to each other over the course of an hour-long meal.

Couples who are dating chat for 50 minutes out of the hour. Twenty years into marriage, the average couple talks for 21 minutes of the hour; 30 years in, conversation takes up 16 minutes. And by 50 years of marital bliss, the average couple converses for three minutes in an hour!
