Spending quality time with your significant other is obviously important—but a recent survey has suggested that 41% of people in a relationship would leave their partner if they weren’t allowed to have proper “me-time”.

A sample poll of  about 2,000 American adults found that of those in a relationship, 85% say getting time for yourself on a regular basis is the key to a healthy relationship. In fact, 82% report that getting the proper amount of “me-time” actually makes their relationship stronger, with 58% saying they actively encourage their partners to spend time by themselves.

The survey, conducted by OnePoll in conjunction with Elements Massage, examined the self-care routines and “me-time” habits of 2,000 Americans and found that “me-time” is one of their biggest big priorities.

According to the survey results, the ideal amount of “me-time” is 51 minutes per day—or about six hours per week.

Interestingly enough, having “me-time” was actually found to be more important to Americans than having date nights with their partner.
