So, with all these hearts in the air, are you happy with your current relationship? Are you satisfied with your love life? Have you ever asked these questions to yourself?

We come across a study that piques our interest. At first glance, it looks like many Malaysians are satisfied with their relationship!

The respondents are broken down into four categories: Boomers, Gen X, Millennials, and Gen Z. To briefly conclude, every group has different perspectives on love.

Malaysians are overall satisfied with their love relationship

In the study, Malaysia is among the countries that have the highest rate of relationship satisfaction. 90% of married or partnered Malaysians are satisfied with their relationship.

Married or partnered people in the Netherlands (94%), Indonesia (94%), and Thailand show a thumb up to satisfaction, while South Korea (73%) and Japan (70%) give a thumb down.

Boomers have a better love life than Millenials

According to the study, Boomers feel more loved than Millenials. This is because Millennials are more satisfied with their romantic or intimate life. It’s based on Ipsos’s Global Love Life Satisfaction survey conducted in these countries: US, Canada, Malaysia, South Africa, Turkey, Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore and others. Generally, the survey was taken from age groups of 18-74.
