Not sure I believe this but new research has apparently revealed that living in the country could help you find true love. Could it be the fresh air, the inspiring landscapes, or the slower way of life?

Researchers discovered 77 per cent of adults living in rural Britain have found their soulmate  – compared with 48 per cent in urban areas. Relationships in the countryside were also found to last twice as long. As many as 61 per cent of countryside residents had been in a relationship for more than a decade -compared with just 21 per cent of urbanites.

In short, relationships in the country are thought to have a better chance of surviving because couples are more loyal and have more time for each other and were found to spend an average of six nights a week together – two more than those in the city.
