To understand the difference between happy and unhappy couples, Dr. Gottman and Robert Levenson began doing longitudinal studies of couples in the s.

They asked couples to solve a conflict in their relationship in 15 minutes, then sat back and watched. Their discovery was simple. The difference between happy and unhappy couples is the balance between positive and negative interactions during conflict. There is a very specific ratio that makes love last.

This means that for every negative interaction during conflict, a stable and happy marriage has five or more positive interactions.

On the other hand, unhappy couples tend to engage in fewer positive interactions to compensate for their escalating negativity. Examples of negative interactions include another predictor of divorce, The Four Horsemenas well as feelings of loneliness and isolation. Negative interactions during conflict include being emotionally dismissive or critical, or becoming defensive.

Body language such as eye-rolling can be a powerful negative interaction, and it is important to remember that negativity holds a great deal of emotional power, which is why it takes five positive interactions to overcome any one negative interaction.

And these negative interactions happen in healthy marriages, too, but they are quickly repaired and replaced with validation and empathy.

Couples who flourish engage in conflict differently than those who eventually break up. Not only do the Masters of marriage start conflict more gently, but they also make repairs in both minor and major ways that highlight the positivity in their relationship. Below is a list of interactions that stable couples regularly use to maintain positivity and closeness.

Be Interested When your partner complains about something, do you listen?

The magic relationship ratio, according to science

Are you curious about why he or she is so mad? Express Affection Do you hold hands with your partner, offer a romantic kiss, or embrace your partner when greeting them at the end of the day? Expressions of affection can happen in small ways both within and outside of conflict.

Within conflict, displays of physical and verbal affection reduce stress. Bringing up something that is important to your partner, even when you disagree, demonstrates that you are putting their interests on par with yours and shows your partner that you care about them.

Those small gestures accumulate over time and will provide a buffer of positivity in your marriage so that when you do enter a conflict, it will be easier to engage in positive interactions that outweigh the negative. Intentional Appreciation How you think about your partner influences how you treat them.

Negativity is bound to thoughts, especially during conflict. Intentionally focusing on the positive will counterbalance any of the moments when you struggle to find something good about your partner. Now turn your thoughts into action: every time you express your positive thinking and give your partner a verbal compliment, no matter how small, you are strengthening your marriage. Find Opportunities for Agreement When couples fight, they focus on the negative parts of the conflict and miss the opportunities for what they agree on.

An alliance in conflict, even minor, can fundamentally shift how couples fight.

Empathize and Apologize Empathy is one of the deepest forms of human connection. When you empathize with your spouse, you show that you understand and feel what your partner is feeling, even if you express empathy nonverbally through a facial expression or a physical gesture. Empathy is a profound connecting skill that all romantic partners can and should improve, and there is no limit to the amount of empathy you can express.

And, if your partner is upset with something you said or did, simply apologize. Make Jokes Playful teasing, silliness, and finding moments to laugh together can ease tension in a heated conflict.

Most couples have inside jokes they only share with each other. This highlights the exclusivity a couple has. However, a word of caution: remember to find a way to joke around that maintains respect and appreciation for your spouse and that serves to bring you both closer together. Is your relationship unbalanced? Observe how you and your partner interact.
