With Valentine's Day around the corner alcohol awareness charity Drinakware has warned people to be aware of the impact alcohol can have on their relationship.
According to new research conducted by Drinkaware a quarter of adults have argued with a partner because of alcohol and one in six have worried about the effect it is having on their relationship.
The survey also shows that 11 per cent have suffered embarrassment when a current or previous partner has had too many to drink.
Chris Sorek, chief executive of Drinkaware, said: "Our research shows that, for many couples, alcohol can cause or exacerbate problems in their relationship. Valentine's Day is an ideal opportunity to highlight the impact alcohol can have on couples because the day is all about celebrating your relationship and putting your loved one first.
"Whether you've fallen into a pattern of always having a tiff because your partner has been sick, because you've been over-friendly with someone else, or because one of you falls asleep on the sofa, it's important to asses whether drinking is worth the alcohol-related arguments. Relationships are an important aspect of anyone's life, why ruin it with alcohol?"
