By WKTV News

CONSUMER (WKTV) - While a sweet text from your beloved can make your day, a new study finds too much messaging can damage a relationship.

Researchers studied the phone habits of more than 100 couples who were in serious relationships, engaged or married.

Men felt too much text messaging of any type negatively impacted the relationship.

Bottom line, according to experts: Talk more, text less.
