Key Formula To A Successful Relationship According To Experts
December 1, 2017
No couple's relationship is immune to conflict; be they arguments about little things such as who will wash the dishes or larger ones, such as infertility. Unfortunately, constant arguments are the reason for most separations and divorces.
But according to Dr. John Gottman and Dr. Robert Levenson, there is a formula for discovering which couples are happy and which are unhappy. So, it can determine if a relationship will be successful or not in the future.
They began by performing longitudinal studies of couples in the 1970s. In these studies, they asked couples to resolve a conflict in their relationship within 15 minutes, while researchers observed their interactions. After carefully going over the tapes and following up with participants 9 years later, they were able to predict which couples were still together and which couples were divorced with over 90% accuracy.
