A British survey of 2,000 people found that one in seven adults do not think their current partner or spouse is the "love of their life" and of that figure, 73 percent say they have had to "make do" with their current partner.
Another 17 percent of those polled said they'd actually met the love of their life since getting together with their current partner, and 46 percent said they'd be prepared to leave said partner if it meant being with said true love, according to a poll carried out by Siemens Festival Nights.
Surprisingly, men were found to be more loyal to their lover than women are. The survey report 37 percent of men said they would stay with their wife or girlfriend for their sake.
"What is alarming is that so many people claim to be in long term relationships or even married to someone who isn't the true love of their life. And if there are people out there who are genuinely in love with two people at the same time, they must face a huge dilemma," Claire Jarvis, Director of Communications for Siemens, told The Telegraph.
Despite some disconcerting findings, Jarvis noted that the majority of adults polled claimed to be head over heels with their current partner," which he found to be "really encouraging."
The study also found that the typical Briton will fall in love twice in their life and 20 percent of adults have likely experienced heartbreak more than five times in their lives.
"The survey highlighted some colorful revelations about people's love lives. The results showed it can be hard to find 'the one' and although the general perception is that women tend to fall in love more often than men, it was intriguing to see that in reality both men and women fall in love on average two times in their life."
