Gold Medalist Jennie Finch & Relationship Expert Stacy Kaiser Help 'Wired' Couples Unplug
Date:7/30/2008

- New National Survey of Couples Shows Overuse of Technology Is Wreaking

Havoc on Romance -

WAYNE, N.J., July 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Many couples live in a "wired" world, juggling lengthy to-do lists, jam-packed schedules, and the 24/7 demands of children and manage it all through cell phones, e-mail and other electronic devices. While this wired lifestyle allows people to stay connected with more friends, family and co-workers than ever before, it is also the very thing disconnecting them from the person in the next room -- their significant other.

Findings from a new national survey of more than 300 couples revealed that on an average day, men and women reach for their cell phones, electronic devices and television remotes for a combined total of 12 times -- three times more than they do for a hug or kiss from their partner!

Jennie Finch, softball gold medalist and busy mom of a two-year-old, understands the struggle couples are facing. "When I'm on the road with my team, I use texting, voicemails and video chats to keep me connected with not only my husband and son, but also my extended family and friends. They allow me to see and talk to them every day, which is so important to me, especially when I'm halfway around the world," Jennie said. "As much as I appreciate how technology has kept us together, I have to remind myself to turn them off or ignore them when I finally have some time alone with my husband."

Just before she tries for another gold medal, Jennie and acclaimed relationship expert Stacy Kaiser are teaming up to discuss how couples can "unplug" and keep the romantic fires burning in a wired world.

"Though Jennie's schedule may not be typical, her struggle to balance competing priorities as well as a growing over-reliance on technology is something many couples can relate to," noted relationship expert Stacy Kaiser. "All of our devices can interrupt our lives, invading quiet evenings
