We conclude that when a woman is happy and satisfied with the marriage, she is putting a little more effort over her husband.
Previous studies have shown that positive and happy marriage brings health benefits. One study has shown that a happy marriage can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Meanwhile, another study found a happy marriage helps women to remain calm and composure in critical situations.
In the latest study, published in the journal of Marriage and Family, prof. Deborah Carr and his team for a period of five years analyzed the quality of marriage and overall happiness in older adults, who have been married for an average of 39 years.
Participants in this study were asked to complete a questionnaire containing questions about what they think about your partner, you respect them, you fight, you understand their feelings and needs. They also kept a diary in which they recorded their daily thoughts and moods.
In cases where the woman said she’s happy marriage, the man said he was also happy, even greater extent. However, the results showed that men whose wives are not happy in the marriage, are also not happy.
“We conclude that when a woman is happy and satisfied with the marriage, she is a little more trouble over his spouse,” said prof. Carr, adding that “all of this has a positive effect on the life of man.”
For men, it is more usual to express your feelings to clearly and loudly so that their dissatisfaction is not transferred to their wives.
