We can always count on the Swedes to promote progressive social ideas. Jantelagen - the philosophy that we are all equal - is their prevailing ethos, while the Goldilocks ideal of "just the right amount" - lagom - is an everyday endeavour.

They're also best in class when it comes to paternity leave, elderly care and space-saving bookcases (the BILLY, from IKEA).

But what really makes me want to pack up my bags and move to Stockholm is their refreshingly open-minded approach to modern relationships.
