The Happiest Point In A Marriage Might Be Later Than You Think – Here’s Why (Video)


A recently published study reveals that, contrary to what many people might think, the happiest years of marriage may still be ahead of you. Tony Spitz has the details.

It’s baffling for some people to imagine choosing one person to spend the rest of your life with. People change over time, and there’s no guarantee you’ll grow in the right direction.

But despite being a rollercoaster, the happiest point in a couple’s marriage has been shown to be later than you might expect.

A study, published in the journal Social Networks and the Life Course, found that couples were happiest when they reached the 20 year mark — their China anniversary.

Researchers from the Pennsylvania State and Brigham Young Universities analysed the marriages of 2,034 couples, with an average age of 35-37, and how their satisfaction changed over the years.

The “seven-year itch” is commonly reported in marriages, but if the results of the study are correct, sticking it out could mean you’re happier in the long run.
