This is a good article about couples and communication. This describes a recent survey of 70,000 and concludes that among couples that are similar, 95% are extremely happy. I just wonder what that really means in an ever-increasingly globalized world with widely diverse demographics. The article also concludes that the simple things are really important. And happy couples do it 3 – 4 times a week. Very interesting. “Couples — Peek Behind the Marital Curtain.” Washington Post (Feb. 8th, 2013).
Here’s an additional article that makes the same point concerning small things and better communications. “Small Acts, Big Love.” Wall Street Journal (Feb. 12, 2013).
