Secrets to a Long Marriage:
- In the past few years psychologists have discovered that thriving couples accentuate the positive in life more than those who languish or split do. They not only cope well during hardship but also celebrate the happy moments and work to build more of these into their lives.
- How couples handle good news may matter even more to their relationship than their ability to support each other under difficult circumstances.
- Members of happy couples also individually experience a higher ratio of upbeat emotions to negative ones than people in unsuccessful pairings do. Certain tactics can boost this ratio and thus help to strengthen bonds with others.
