The Secret to a Happy Marriage?

For dads aiming at marital bliss, a new study suggests just two factors are especially important: being engaged with the kids, for sure -- but also doing a fair share of the household chores.
In other words, just taking the children outside for a game of catch won't cut it.
"In our study, the wives thought father involvement with the kids and participation in household work are all inter-related and worked together to improve marital quality," said Adam Galovan, lead author of the study and a researcher at the University of Missouri, in Columbia. "They think being a good father involves more than just doing things involved in the care of children."
Do you agree? Is the secret to a happy marriage a husband that helps out with chores around the house, as well as spending time with the children?
