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. First, they asked the individuals to report on their relationship satisfaction and any problems they were having. 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”). The researchers measured their reaction time as they pressed a button indicating whether the word they...

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. My,...

By Debbie Magids, Ph.D. When your parents and relatives speak about “the good old days,” you can’t help but wonder — were they really that good? Men were the breadwinners, women were the homemakers and the stages of life were predetermined. Traditionally, your identity crisis began at age 40 By 25, a woman was married with at least one baby or she was considered to be an “old maid” — at 25, a man typically had a career and a “traditional” wife, or was deemed a failure. At 30 a woman was expected to devote her life to cooking, cleaning and raising the kids — meanwhile, a 30-year-old man usually worked a 60-hour week to get ahead. By 40, it was time for the “mid-life crisis” to begin. At that age, a man usually bought a sports car, if he wasn’t...

5 Signs Your Marriage Will Make It

Smile for the camera! It could save your marriage, shows a study from DePauw University in Indiana. Actually, it’s probably too late for that. The researchers found people who flashed the biggest, toothiest smiles in their yearbook and childhood photos were the most likely to dodge divorce later in life. How come? Men–but especially women–who grinned in photographs as youngsters tend to have more stable natures and are usually more emotionally upbeat. And both those characteristics improve the likelihood of marriage stability, the study authors explain. Here are four more weird indicators of a lasting union: Neither you nor your wife …read...

Does Love at First Sight Exist?

Gut check: How you feel the moment you lay eyes on your eventual mate can help you gauge the long-term success of your marriage, finds new research from Florida State University. While almost every newlywed says he feels excited about his nuptials, those expressions of optimism are pretty worthless when it comes to predicting marriage satisfaction four years down the road, the study shows. When researchers used word-association tests to measure “gut-level” instincts–basically, your unconscious or unstated feelings about your new spouse–they found most people know instinctively whether their marriage is headed for trouble. “Newly-married spouses want to …read...
