Key to a good marriage? Share housework-AP

Instead, the study found that couples now rate sharing household chores, income and having a happy sexual relationship as more prominent factors to make a marriage successful.

The survey also found that, by a margin of nearly 3-to-1, Americans say the main purpose of marriage is the "mutual happiness and fulfillment" of adults rather than the "bearing and raising of children."
