How to Guide – Marital Happiness
A recent study ranked the top 10 factors that influenced marital happiness, shown here in descending order of importance.
- Love between spouses (Duh!)
- Willingness and ability to communicate (Double duh!)
- Loyalty (Yup!)
- Children (That’s why we should all adopt teens that already have full scholarships to Stanford.)
- Income (Money can buy you love apparently)
- Sexual life (That’s what she said.)
- Relations between mother-in-law and daughter-in-law (What about just plain old mother and daughter relations?)
- Relationship with in-laws in general (Just move out already!)
- Housing conditions (In a tent or in a caravan . . . I’m out)
- Housework allocation (Who allocates? This must be a German survey… Sorry Germans but my Grandmother was from Dusseldorf and I know)
The survey also found that people who have been married for less than three years were the happiest demographic while those who have been married from seven to 10 years were enjoying their marriages the least.
