I do all of the dishes all of the time. I can't think of the last time my husband washed dishes. He doesn't even do them when I'm out of town; he just leaves a lovely little pile. Regardless, we have one of the best marriages I know of. How could that possibly be? /eye rolling

And don't even get me started on "great sex." I can't believe it polls that high. If that's the most important thing that's keeping your marriage together, I feel sorry for you.

Holy Cow!! The only one of the top three I agree with is the faithfulness one. Some of the things ranked lower, I would put a whole lot higher! Scary.

Sarah, my mom had the greatest explanation about sex in the marriage, she said if the sex is good, no matter how bad everything else is, the marriage can be saved, on the other hand no matter how good everything else was if the sex was bad/non-existent, the relationship was doomed.

I would replace their "great sex" with "great intimacy". Sex is a part of intimacy, and an important part, but not the only part.

Besides, I really, really, really like it a lot.

I'm not so sure about "great sex," but I think it's of utmost importance to have similar sex drives. Otherwise it leads to issues surrounding fidelity and then when will the dishes EVER get done?
