Zoosk Poll Finds 75% Support Priscilla Chan's "Relationship Contract" Idea
SAN FRANCISCO, May 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- While Mark Zuckerberg may have had a multi-billion dollar idea, his wife Priscilla Chan had a great idea when it comes to relationships. According to a recent poll by Zoosk.com, the romantic social network, it seems Mrs. Zuckerberg's concept of a "relationship contract" is a winner with 75% of Zoosk fans saying they "love it."
Among the details discussed in the press about the recent Zuckerberg nuptials, it has been reported by multiple news sources that while dating her future husband, Mrs. Zuckerberg negotiated a "relationship contract" prior to relocating to Palo Alto, California. One of the terms of the contract allegedly states that she is entitled to "one date per week, a minimum of a hundred minutes of alone time, not in his apartment and definitely not at Facebook."
This week, Zoosk.com polled 1,352 fans of its page on Facebook to gather their thoughts about the idea of a "relationship contract." Zoosk posed the question: "What do you think of the idea of a 'relationship contract' committing your significant other to at least one date a week?" 75% said "love it" while 25% said "hate it." 1,352 people responded to the poll on May 21, 2012.
"Americans of all ages and relationship statuses lead increasingly busy lives, so the idea of a 'relationship contract' to ensure quality time with your significant other is something more people might start to think about," said Alex Mehr, co-founder and co-CEO of Zoosk.
