Couples who choose to take in a cat or a dog, can be making a more active sign of commitment to their future than even having a baby.
The Marriage Foundation, the think-tank set up by the High Court judge Sir Paul Coleridge, which studies marriage and relationships, and the law firm Seddons commissioned a survey of 3,500 adults to find their views on what promotes stability, the Telegraph reported.
People surveyed were asked to rate acts like buying a house or opening a joint bank account in terms of how important a sign of commitment they are.
Having a child was rated just ahead of getting married and buying a house together, with an average score of eight out of 10 from those polled.
Including a partner in a will was rated as more significant than opening a joint account while buying a pet together scored just under five out of 10 on average.
