While different things may be important to us in terms of who we end up dating, apparently there is broad agreement as to what is important in order to keep a marriage together.

A new research survey has found the three most important factors are common interests, a satisfying sexual relationship and sharing household chores.

That's according to married adults in the US anyway.

Here's where each factor ranked:

  • Having shared interests (64%)
  • Having a satisfying sexual relationship (61%)
  • Sharing household chores (56%)
  • Shared religious beliefs (47%)
  • Having children (43%)
  • Adequate income (42%)
  • Agreement on politics (16%)

Married people, do you agree? Let us know in the comments.
