Relationship expert Mark Manson has recently revealed what he believes to be the key to a long lasting relationship. 

Especially in today's day and age, he's encouraging couples to spend less time searching for excitement and more time embracing boredom.

"I think, if you look at a relationship, I actually think it should be as boring as possible." he said.

"And that sounds really weird to people but if you think about it, a really happy 80-year-old couple that's been together for 60 years, the reason that they've been together for 60 years, it isn't because they took all these private jets and they had these crazy vacations and "Oh my God, look at their pictures." 

"It's because that they were able to be boring together. They are able to spend year after year, sitting around the house, talking about the same boring stuff, watching TV, watching movies, cooking dinner, and it went fine."

"It's an important thing for people to understand because I think, especially today, a lot of people - we don't want to be a boring person, like we really want to be interesting people and have interesting lives but the problem is that, that conflicts with what makes a relationship good in a lot of cases."

So next time your find yourself mucking around the house with your partner, it might not be such a bad thing!
