Does the right partner make you a better, 'cleaner' person?

Put down your self help book. Ditch the mindfulness app. Quit the night class. All you need, it seems, to transform yourself into the best version of you... is the right partner.

That's according to a survey of Americans, which found that nine out of ten people in relationships think that they've made "improvements" to their partner. Furthermore, 75% of people consider themselves a completely different person for having found their other halves, with the vast majority believing that the changes are all for the better.

The results cast doubt on the conventional wisdom about accepting your partner warts and all. It seems that what people really want out of relationships is to be challenged to grow and improve—and of course to do some challenging in return.

Fashion is one of the biggest areas of improvement, with 30% of adults believing that their loved one dresses better for having them guide their wardrobe choices. And though the result should be taken with a big dose of scrubbing salt, what with the survey being commissioned by a cleaning product company, it seems that cleanliness is another major factor in the improvement stakes. Nearly 30% of women and nearly 60% of men say that their partner's influence has made them a cleaner person, both on a personal and home level.

It's not all great news though—64% of people say there's still room for improvement where their partner's concerned, with cleanliness being the most pressing issue!
