Married Washington couples want to know: What exactly are the keys to a successful marriage? Many may say communication, honesty, loyalty and compromise.

As the old saying goes, "money can't buy happiness," but according to the research, more money equates to a happier marriage. Those who make between $50,000 and $75,000 are 39 percent less likely to divorce, while those who earn more than $125,000 a year are 51 percent less likely to divorce. This makes sense, considering that many marriages end due to financial issues.
