A healthy, positive husband is important in long-term unions, study finds

Posted by in Blog | 0 comments

A recent study revealed a healthier, more positive husband leads to a stronger and more successful relationship among older couples, the New York Daily News reported on Tuesday, March 18.

The study, which was conducted by the University of Chicago, involved 953 heterosexual couples who were aged between 63 and 90, and had been married or cohabitating for an average of 39 years. Results concluded that wives with healthier husbands are less likely to report marital conflict. The study also devised a new measure called ‘positivity,’ or the need to be perceived positively. Wives whose husbands have scored high on this measure are also less likely to report relationship conflicts.
