Study Shows When Marriages May Begin to Fail

By Law Offices of Frank F. Ali  Mar. 20, 2013 2:28p

A British study in which 2,000 married adults were polled about their habits showed a definite end to married bliss. After three years and six months, most of those polled admitted to taking their spouse and their marriage for granted. At that point, according to the study, bad habits began to set in, such as going to bed at different times, eating at different times, lack of date nights, and never saying "I love you." Appearance also took a turn for the worse with couples dressing down before the other got home, and women not bothering with make-up or shaving their legs. Forgetting birthdays, anniversaries, and Valentine's Day also became habitual as well as preferring to spend time with friends rather than with one another.

While some may view these behaviors as a decline, 75 percent of those polled felt that such behaviors were normal for anyone married for that length of time. 90 percent felt that they could behave in such ways because they were so comfortable with one another. Only 43 percent felt that taking one another for granted was not ideal. 82 percent of the couples felt that their marriages were happy. About half, however, wished for more romance in the relationship.
