In a survey done by OnePoll in partnership with Apple Vacations, they found that three out of five Americans say that going on a vacation saved their relationship.

The poll done among 2,000 adults also showed that 61 percent went on a trip in order to reignite the flame of their romance. Six out of 10 said they experienced more romance during their getaway compared to their usual routine.

Respondents also revealed that they would typically go on three romantic vacations with their special someone in one year.

The reasons they cited were to spend quality time with their partner (72 percent); experience something new with their partner (72 percent); see a part of the world they have never seen before (66 percent); to go on an adventure (63 percent); and to reignite their romance (61 percent).

They also found that 41 percent expect that their partner will propose during a getaway. Of those who suspected their partner will pop the question, four out of five were confirmed. Aside from getting engaged, 32 percent said they eloped while on a vacation.
