Married couples happiest after 2 years 11 months

275x250.jpgMarried couples are at their happiest two years, 11 months and eight days after walking down the aisle, it has been claimed.

Researchers asked 4,000 husbands and wives to pinpoint their happiness in eleven different aspects of married life and calculated the typical stage when everything falls into place.
Just under three years emerged as the point when couples feel completely comfortable with each other's bad habits and have a plan for their future.
At this stage they will also enjoy a full and active sex life, will have carried out enough DIY for their house to feel homely and will still find time for romantic meals together.

The study also found that couples claim to have their best sex after two years and four months… we assume they mean with each other. 
A spokesperson for, which carried out the research, said: "Our research has revealed the exact moment into married life British couples are most content.
"Three years after walking down the aisle and everything seems to come together - making each other laugh the most and cuddle 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."
