Study:  Married Americans Kept Ex-Partners on the Back Burner During Pandemic
Married people have been reconnecting with old flames, amid the pandemic.  So say University of Oklahoma researchers; who looked at 397 adults.  They found that 62-percent said they are keeping someone on the “back burner,” just in case, even if they are in a committed relationship.
The study also found that 54-percent of women, and 44-percent of men have admitted to hooking up with a former partner.
Study leader Dr. John Banas adds, “If having ex-partner back burners cascades into increased communication, increased sexual activity, and bad feelings for the admirer, then those in committed relationships might wish to exercise caution before forming a back-burner relationship with an ex-partner.”
Another researcher adds that as society re-opens, there has been a surge in the use of dating apps.
