If your marriage is a little past 11 months, you’re on the down slope! The happiest time in a marriage is 11 months and eight days after their wedding. A survey asked 4,000 married couples when the happiest points in their marriage was, and 11 months was the number one answer. There are some things to look forward to in the next year or so. The survey also says at 2 years and 6 months, wives realize they have received a respectable number of flowers, chocolates and compliments. Men helping with household chores peaks just before the third anniversary. Something very special happens after three years…couples feel completely comfortable with one another. Leaving the bathroom door open while you’re going is not a high point.
