A recent study from UC Berkeley discovered that the ability of wives to calm down after a fight with their spouse has a greater impact on the couple’s overall happiness in their marriage.

Results from the over 80 couples that were videotaped by the research group, headed by assistant professor Lian Bloch, showed that wives who are able to calm themselves and their emotions after a fight with their husbands are more likely to have a happy, lasting marriage. Bloch stressed that marriages can continue to be successful when wives are able to gain control over their emotions and resolve conflicts with their spouses.

Psychologist Robert Levenson explained that compared to men, women tend to offer solutions and discuss the situation in an effort to settle a heated argument.
