2,984 Couples Reveal the Secrets of Lasting Relationships

By Elizabeth Hanes

In our unceasing quest to bring you the news you need to live your life in a more fulfilling, Oprah-like manner, we recently polled nearly three thousand North American couples to find out what makes relationships work. OK, maybe "polled" is too strong a word. Actually, a group of us sat around the office late at night, sipping vodka gimlets and randomly dialing telephone numbers. But the results were astounding! Take a look.

We hope you're able to put these statistics to good use in your relationship. Remember, numbers never lie, and nothing's more normal than average.
