Is it possible to be in a happy relationship? There are many couples out there that have found true love and settled down into healthy relationships.

There is a growing number of couples getting connected through a dating app, like LOV. Finding your significant other through internet dating can be very helpful. You don’t end up going out with people that are not compatible with you.

Where do The Happiest Couples Live?

Do you think that culture plays into how happy a couple can be? Is there a place on earth that couples tend to be in better relationships?

eHarmony Labs paired up with Oxford Internet Institute to conduct a survey of 16 Western European countries. Out of 16,573 people that were surveyed, the Netherlands won the award.

Here are the top ranking countries in order of who had the most satisfied couples:

  1. Netherlands
  2. Germany
  3. Austria
  4. Sweden
  5. Switzerland
  6. France
  7. Portugal
  8. Belgium
  9. Spain
  10. Italy
  11. Greece
  12. UK
  13. Norway
  14. Denmark
  15. Ireland
  16. Finland

You can see the map of these through this infographic, this is only a small section of the world, but of those living in these countries, those in the Netherlands reported being the happiest in their relationships.

We can only assume that some cultural implications in that region have helped couples to be fully adjusted with one another.

How Does The US Rank With Other Cultures?

If you live in the US, you might wonder how you rank with other nationalities. One study was conducted among English-speaking couples and Spanish-speaking couples.

In that study, it turned out that both cultures valued many of the same things. For example, they both wanted partners that:

  • Valued intimacy
  • Had the same idea of romanticism
  • Wanted a partner that sees them as an equal
  • Had a partner that was ambitious

It would seem that the key to being a happy couple is to find someone that is compatible with you on these levels.
