7 Science-Based Tips for a Happy Marriage

We're big fans of The New York Times writer, Tara Parker-Pope (check out our 25 Marriage Tweeps You Should Follow). Her regular column featured in the Well Blog of the NYT is on our regular reading list, and her book, "For Better: How the Surprising Science of Happy Couples Can Help Yo..." sits on our nightstand. Writer Eric Barker from The Week has consolidated the main points pulled from Parker-Pope's book to reveal 7 science-based tips for a happy marriage. If you've read Hitched for any amount of time or listened to the podcast you've heard many of these items before, but there's nothing wrong with ongoing encouragement. For example, for every one negative comment made in your marriage, research by Dr. John Gottman shows that you'll need five positive statements to offset the negative impact. 

Be sure to visit the article from The Week for a quick breakdown, but more importantly read Parker-Pope's book for all the details and practical tips.
