It's a common thought that a happy wife equaled a happy life. It turns out that new research of 953 couples from the University of Chicago found that marital happiness is actually more aligned with the happiness and health of the husband.

Conversely, the same was not as true for wives.

“Wives report more conflict if their husband is in poor health,” said the study’s lead author, James Iveniuk, PhD candidate in the Department of Sociology. “If the wife is in poor health, there doesn’t seem to be any difference in terms of the quality of the marriage for the husband.” Read the full release here
