Getting on the property ladder is no easy feat in 2017.

在2017年,成为有房一族绝不是件容易的事情。
So much so, that 1.8 million UK adults are staying in relationships simply so that they can buy a house faster, a new survey has found.
一项最新调查发现,英国有180万成年人维持关系的理由很简单,只是为了自己能更快地买房子。
According to the research, conducted by L&C Mortgages, 11 per cent of non-homeowners would stay in an unhappy relationship if it allowed them to buy their own property.
根据借贷商L&C Mortgages的研究显示,如果可以负担其房产,11%的无房人士愿意留在一段不开心的关系中。
The survey also revealed that 44 per cent of aspiring homeowners wouldn't have stayed with their partner had property purchasing not been part of the equation.
调查还显示,如果不是结婚能够快速买房,44%有抱负的房主也不会选择和伴侣住在一起。

"The fact that so many people view staying in a relationship they perhaps don't want to be in as one of their only options for getting onto the housing ladder is indicative of the struggle people face when buying their first home," David Hollingworth at L&C Mortgages said.

借贷商L&C Mortgages的大卫·霍林沃思表示:“事实上,很多人不太希望选择通过这种关系去买房,但是实际上这是他们唯一的选择,这也表明他们在购买第一套房子时所面临的困难。”
He explained that due to the large sums needed for deposits, combining salaries with a partner is often the only option.
他解释说,由于买房需要大量资金,与对方合资买房通常是唯一的选择。
The average price of a first home in the UK hit a record high this year, at 207,693 pounds, 50 per cent higher than in 2012.
英国今年首套房的平均房价是207693英镑,这一数字创下历史新高,比2012年要高出50%。
