London: A survey has found that one in five married couples do not kiss for an entire week.

But if they do, it is usually a quick smooch lasting no more than five seconds, a newspaper reported.

According to the survey, the younger sweethearts between 18 and 24, are more romantic, as they lock lips with a partner 11 times a week.

The findings have been released in a campaign by the British Heart Foundation to teach reviving skills like the kiss of life to schoolchildren as part of the national curriculum.
