Two years, 11 months and eight days after saying ‘I do’ married couples are at their happiest. That’s the conclusion of a new research that asked 4,000 husbands and wives to pinpoint their happiness.
According to the research, the pairs will also enjoy a full sex life, have carried out enough DIY for their house to make it homely and still find time for romantic meals together, reports The Daily Express.
Carol Richardson, from wedding website www.confetti.co.uk, said: “Our research showed that three years after walking down the aisle everything seems to come together – making each other laugh the most and cuddling up in front of the TV."
"They’ll also spend the longest amount of quality time together each evening and make small gestures like offering to cook dinner and help with the washing up. We’ve found the secret to the happiest time together isn’t about big, expensive and lavish gifts, but being there for each other to share special moments.”
Wives are likely to receive flowers, chocolates and compliments two-and-a-half years down the line, the study found. A man’s help with household chores reaches its peak just before their third anniversary, while big arguments will be a distant memory three months later, claims the research.
