When you start a relationship, you never think about the things that could make something so loving turn into something so toxic and unhappy. Not all couples are as happy as they seem.

Counseling Psychology found that the average American still rates their happiness at 8 out of 10. Gen Z has the happiest couples with Boomers right behind them, followed by Millennials and Gen X.
