1. For starters, both individuals were looking for a meaningful relationship from the beginning.

The study actually debunked a common dating myth that your soul mate will come into your life when you're not looking for one. In fact, individuals who are actively seeking out connections end up in happier relationships.

"There's this old idea that if I'm looking, I can't find it, and when I'm not looking, that's the moment it appears. That's not what we see here," Langston said. "People who sort of bump into a relationship are less happy than people who say, 'I have to be intentional about this. I have to go out and make this happen for myself.'"

While most people get married because they are in love, some wed because of societal pressures, financial stability, and the need for a family. But the couples who said their "I dos" because of love - 44% to be exact - are much happier on average. As many as 70% of people surveyed said sharing a life together is more important than marriage, and 55% of people surveyed said marriage would make their relationship happier.

3. They have frequent sex.

On average, couples who are happy have sex weekly and, in some cases, daily. For example, out of those surveyed, 69% of men reported that they frequently orgasm with their partners, as opposed to 51% of women.

Study reveals two ages people are happiest in life

Study reveals two ages people are happiest in life While happiness can be found at any age, it peaks first at age 16, according to a new report.

Langston pointed out, however, that while frequent sex is important, most of the couples did not say sex is the most important part of their relationships.

"We see sex as a big role to play but most of these happy couples don't have this at the top," Langston told INSIDER. "They understand that if I don't value intelligence and emotional stability, I'm not going to have a good relationship."

4. They are monogamous - but they still like to explore sexually.

While only 5% of people reported being in non-monogamous relationships, only 26% of those people reported being happy. On the other hand, of the couples who identify as monogamous, 38% said they were happy in their relationships. Monogamous couples report that they are still open-minded and are open to trying new activities in the bedroom.

According to the study, opposites, in fact, do not attract. Couples that have similar interests and hobbies are more likely to be happy together. But, they must also be similar in other parts of their personality as well. For example, they must have the same conflict-resolution tactics. Langston said if one person likes to talk calmly through an argument, while another likes to scream and yell, they will not succeed as a couple.

6. More specifically, they must agree politically.

For the first time in years, Langston said happy couples emphasized the importance of politics in their relationship. In fact, the majority of happy couples report that they voted in the 2018 midterm elections and have open discussions about politics on a regular basis. However, they should have similar political views, Langston said, otherwise, these discussions are likely to turn into arguments.

7. They must have a similar education.

On average, people with more education are happier in their relationships. However, Langston said it's more important that each person has the same amount of education as their partner to be happy.

8. Happy couples also believe in open communication.
