NEW YORK (Reuters Life!) - Looking for the key to a happy marriage? Then take turns doing the washing up, regularly take out the trash and help bath the dog, according to a U.S. survey on what makes a successful marriage.
A new Pew Research Center study found an increasing number of American adults considered sharing household chores as very important, ranking it third in a list of nine items associated with successful marriages -- and put ahead of children.
Topping the list in the telephone survey of 2,020 people was faithfulness, with 93 percent of respondents rating it very important, with a happy (intimate) relationship coming second, rated very important by 70 percent of respondents.
"But household chores (at 62 percent) are now nipping at the heels of the second-place item - "happy sexual relationship," the Pew Research Center said in a statement released this week.
Researchers found virtually no difference of opinion on this between men and women, older adults and younger adults, or between married people and singles.
The decline and fall of Western civilization can be seen above. When children, the next generation, are no longer a top goal, the society is in deep doo doo.
