In modern times, emphasis on the institution of marriage, generally described as a male-female bond, has obscured pair bonds formed by same-sex and transsexual couples, and that many heterosexual couples also bond for life without offspring, or that often pairs that do have offspring separate.

But those feeling smug and secure in the early years of their partnership may want to sit up and take note as new research reveals that couples are now most likely to end their relationships after just two years and nine months.

The research polled a total of 1,953 UK adults who had all been the individual that ended a serious relationship or marriage within the past two years.

While pair-bonds of varying forms were recognized by most societies as acceptable social arrangements, marriage was reserved for heterosexual pairings and had a transactional nature, where wives were in many cases a form of property being exchanged between father and husband, and who would have to serve the function of reproduction.

Communities exerted pressure on people to form pair-bonds in places such as Europe; in China, society "demanded people get married before having a sexual relationship" and many societies found that some formally recognized bond between a man and a woman was the best way of rearing and educating children as well as helping to avoid conflicts and misunderstandings regarding competition for mates.

Unsurprisingly the majority of participants and their ex-partners (79 per cent) had been actively using social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram before parting ways, with 36 per cent admitting that they had met their ex online either through social media or a dating site.
