In March 2009 I conducted a brief research survey looking to discover what basic elements are necessary for a marriage or committed relationship to thrive.
After surveying 1028 participants, here’s what the research discovered.
Top 10 basic elements
A few demographic details about the respondents –
Male – 404 respondents – or 40%
Female – 617 respondents – or 60%
81% or the respondents were currently married with 7% cohabitating. Average length of current relationship was 10.8 years and 64% of the respondents had children.
In case you’re wondering – the actual research question was:
What are the basic elements necessary for a marriage/committed relationship to thrive? (list up to 6)
What’s your thought?
