 Magic Formula of a Healthy Marriage Revealed

Researchers conducted a study that seems to signal greater marriage satisfaction, in an attempt to find the magic formula for keeping a marriage healthy.

Robert Levenson, director of the Institute of Personality and Social Research at the University of California, Berkeley, who has been studying 156 couples since 1989, has suggested that women may hold the key to resolving arguments, Fox News reported.

It was found that relationships in which the wives cooled down quickly after an argument were the happiest in both the short and long term.

The researcher said that it is important to be more versatile, as what's good for one partner might not help the other. One needs to have different approaches for interacting with each other and tailor them to the situation.

Levenson suggested that saying "we" instead of "me" can save your fading marriage.

It was found that the ones who said "we" the most ranked significantly higher in marital satisfaction than those couples who repeatedly used "I" and "me" while arguing.
