6 April 2013-
The May edition of Reader's Digest features a breezy article titled "Is Your Marriage Normal or Nuts?"
Don't answer just yet.
But within the piece is a short list detailing eight lessons from the "World's Happiest Couples." I'd like to share them with you and ask if you might add to it:
1. Kindness Helps: 74 percent of couples who said they were happy give each other back rubs.
2. It's Not Necessarily about the Looks: 20 percent of the happiest partners say they're not physically attracted to their spouse.
3. Similar Personalities Help: Of the 45 percent of people who say they have a lot in common with their spouses, 95% describe their relationships as extremely happy.
4. Keep Talking: 40 percent of the happiest couples say communication – more than friendship, affection, or even sex – is the most satisfying part of the relationship.
