The ‘7 Year Itch’ is a psychological concept which implies happiness in the marital relationship starts to decline at around the 7 year mark.

The 7 year itch became a well-known concept following the1955 romantic comedy film starring Marilyn Monroe. The film is based on a book entitled, The 7 Year Itch, which suggests people get infidelity urges at around the 7 year mark of marriage.

This concept has been widely accepted, with statistics illustrating a significant number of divorces occur at the 7 year anniversary of marriage, or that the relationship begins to decline at this time.
