Married couples struggle with five-year itch

Press Association

Many have heard of the seven-year itch, but it is the fifth year of marriage that is really the toughest, according to new research.

A study of 2,000 married people found that most described the first year as a whirlwind of wedded bliss, while the third year of marriage was said to be the happiest of all as couples settle into a comfortable co-existence.

However couples found the fifth the most difficult, due to tiredness and increasing workloads.
