Long Commutes Not Healthy For “Good Marriages”


(Old Lyme, CT) January 5, 2008 - Commuting to work is never fun. Whether you’re facing an hour’s wait on the New Jersey Turnpike or a two hour crawl onto Los Angeles, millions of people waste large chunks of their day sitting in traffic instead of spending time with their families or serving their customers. But commuting isn’t just frustrating for the person stuck in the gridlock. Long commutes can actually have a devastating effect on marriages.

“Everyone’s aware of the wastefulness of a long commute,” explains Sam Childs, Principal of, who has helped dozens of clients save their marriages. “But few people are aware of the harm that wasted time is doing to a relationship.”

According to Childs, the most damaging aspect of a commute is the fact that after sitting in a traffic jam for an hour or two, people tend to come him both angry and tired- and have nowhere to vent except at their partner. That daily frustration can wear away at even the most solid of relationships and the most patient of partners.

But it’s not just the pain of sitting on the road that causes problems. The lost time keeps parents away from children and partners from each other. That’s valuable time that would be better spent building the relationship instead of slowly chipping away at its foundations.

Although it’s not always easy to find a way around a long commute, when the choice is between changing jobs or moving house, or starting a new marriage, the decision should be easy, says Childs.
