Will My Relationship Last? | Women’s Health Magazine

Posted by on Dec 13, 2013 in Your Life Now | 0 comments

Getting cold feet before your wedding is usually just brushed off as nerves, but new research suggests it might be a really bad sign. When it comes to newlyweds, gut feelings predict future relationship happiness better than self-reported feelings, according to a new study published in the journal Science. Researchers from Florida State University recruited 135 couples who had been married for less than six months, then surveyed them twice a year for four years.

Then, they measured their gut-level feelings about their bond by flashing a photo of their spouse on a computer screen, followed by a positive or negative word (like “awesome” or “terrible”).

For the study, researchers gave 240 participants snacks of popcorn and chocolate chips served on either red, white, or blue plates.  And it turns out that those who munched popcorn or chocolate chips off of red plates ate less overall than those who ate the snacks off of white or blue. Why? While previous studies have suggested that having a color contrast between your food and your dishes is key this study suggests something else may be at play...

Beware the Overshare: Why You Shouldn’t Always Open Up Your new friend confides something very personal. Do not—repeat, do not—second that emotion. Martha Beck on how to manage people who play fast and loose with intimacy. Boris came to me at the behest of his new girlfriend, Cecily, whom I’d known for years. Since most people dislike being pushed to see any sort of adviser, I expected Boris to be reticent, if not downright hostile. How wrong I was! After a few minutes of chitchat, Boris himself raised a very personal issue. “I know why Cecily’s confused,” he said sheepishly. “We’ve been dating for months, and we still haven’t slept together.” “Okay,” I said cautiously, not wanting to disrupt a delicate moment. “You see,” Boris said, looking at the floor. “Ten years ago I had a cancer scare.
