What can make a marriage last?
It is quite surprisingly simple. Couples in lasting marriages aren’t smarter, richer, or more psychologically astute than others. But in their day-to-day lives they have hit upon a dynamic that keeps their negative thoughts and feelings about each other (which all couples have) from overwhelming their positive ones. They have what Dr. Gottman calls an “emotionally intelligent marriage.”
The more in touch a person is with their emotions the better they are at understanding and getting along with others. The same principle is true for relationships between spouses. It requires a good amount of emotional intelligence for a couple to fully understand, honour, and respect one another and their marriage and in the long run the more likely they will live happily ever after.
Taken from the book: The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work. Based on the research by Dr. John Gottman.
