Couples split over bad gifts, poll finds
Well, thoughtless or not, a significant number of couples actually split over bad gift giving, according to a new poll.
The survey finds that one in six couples have had a full-blown fight over a bad gift, and what's more, one in 20 couples have actually broken up for the same reason.

But then, we love each other tremendously and have for 24 years...
I think it is important to find out how long couples have been together to determine whether a gift is appropriate or appreciated.
A new couple most likely will expect to give and receive something Romantic and an established couple may not.
Its really up to them and breaking up over a gift sounds a bit silly.
