Just when you thought you had a few more weeks to prepare for Valentines Day, another “holiday” is thrown in the mix! January 26 is National Spouses Day!

A day set aside to remind us to take time for that special someone that we are legally bound to in our life! But let’s face it, sometimes our significant other can annoy us just a wee bit!

Nationaltoday.com did a survey ahead of this Spouses Day on that very subject.
