Vietnamese Couples Are the Most Fulfilled in Asia: Report

Hong Kong-based financial security provider Prudential recently released a report on the best places in Asia to develop healthy personal relationships, and Vietnam is at the top.

The inaugural Prudential Relationship Index (PRI) assesses personal relationships between partners, friends, children, parents and other family members on the basis of four main criteria: compatibility, companionship, communication and commitment.

Over the course of a few weeks in July 2016, researchers interviewed 5,000 adults aged 25 to 55 in each of the 10 different countries listed in the survey, ranking the strength of their relationships out of 100.

As it turns out, Vietnamese took the top spot when it comes to feeling fulfilled in their relationships, earning a score of 83. By contrast, the average score for Asia was 68, while China came in last with a score of 54.

The PRI also found that Vietnamese respondents were least likely to leave their partner and did not consider similar religious beliefs as a necessary factor in relationships.

Meanwhile, money and children were the two most likely sources of disagreement for all survey respondents. Interestingly enough, these rates are also highest in Vietnam: 55% Vietnamese interviewees reportedly argue with their partners over money and 58% argue over children. Vietnamese couples are also the most likely to hold joint bank accounts, with 78% of respondents saying they share their financial assets with their partner.

As for children, Vietnamese parents are the least likely to think their kids misbehave. Compared to Asia’s average of 30%, only 16% of Vietnamese parents in the survey stated their children misbehave at least once each week.
