Couple Who Refer to Themselves as "We" are Happier

A new study conducted by new study from the University of California, Berkeley says that couples who used the words, "we," "us," and "ours" were more happy than couples who said "I," "me," or "you." Researchers analyzed 154 middle-aged and older married couples talking about disagreements and the couples using the plural words found that the discussions went more smoothly and were less physically stressful. The study also linked the separateness pronouns to unhappy marriages. This article from the NY Daily News also says that, "earlier studies have shown that “we-ness” versus “me-ness” is a strong indicator of how happy younger couples are." So it seems pretty clear. If you want a happier marriage, start talking like a team and less like an individual.

Have you ever noticed your pronoun language? Are you a "we" or and "I" person? Post a comment below.
