Norwich Locals Reveal The Previously Considered Destructive Relationship Habit They Now Believe To Be Required For A Successful Marriage

  • 64% believe it is healthy for happily married couples to argue
  • 3.06 arguments per month contribute to a happy marriage
  • Going on 4.19 dates and having sex 9.58 times per month are key to a successful marriage for Norwich residents                                          

NORWICH adults have revealed the elements they believe make up a successful 21st century marriage, and there are some surprising results.

A survey of 2,000 UK adults carried out by One4all, the Post Office gift card, found 64% of those in Norwich believe it is healthy for happily married couples to argue.

In fact, an average of 3.06 arguments per month contributes to a “happy ever after” in 2017, according to those living in the city.

That along with going on 4.19 dates and having sex 9.58 times per month, are key to a successful marriage, Norwich adults believe.  

Individuals living in Norwich expect spouses to compliment one another on average 17.75 times per month and to go the extra mile giving one another presents twice in the same time period.

Couples who want to abide by “until death do us part” should enjoy meaningful conversations with each other 18.74 times per month, while they should flirt with each other 15.27 times monthly, according to locals.

The research also found that those living in the city are most likely (65%) to look to their parents as an example of what a successful marriage looks like, followed by grandparents (22%).

Aoife Davey, group marketing manager at One4all Gift Cards commented: “It’s healthier to discuss upsets and concerns than to bottle them up.

“Traditionally, arguing may have been considered unhealthy but what is nice to see is that many of those living in Norwich now in fact recognise the important role of expressing your feelings – both positive and negative – in relationships. Just make sure that tempers are kept in check, you are respectful and that you are doing the more positive essential components regularly, too”.

The One4all Gift Card is available to buy from Post Offices nationwide and online at, and can be spent in more than 50,000 outlets across the UK.
