Marriage Monday

There was some interesting research this week about how spouses who fight live longer. John Gottman, a leading marriage researcher, has classified what he calls "master couples." A master couple is a couple who has stayed married and still kind of like each other. He says that couples who are "masters" don't fight less than other couples, but they have learned how to repair their fights and how to exit fights. Check out Gottman's book Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work to read more about successful couples.
