The Happiest Couples Share These 10 Habits



Coming off yesterday’s post about how it’s the little things—like differences in personality and habit—that often cause a marriage to fail, this topic seems quite fitting: A study done by psychiatrist Mark Goulston discovered that the happiest couples share certain characteristics and habits that cause them to lead healthy, harmonious lives together.

There are 10 habits, specifically, that Goulston found to be common among happy couples: going to bed at the same time, walking hand in hand, embracing each other after the workday and saying “I love you” are just a few of them.

Take a look at the entire list of habits here—most of these actions are easy to add into your daily routine if you’re not already doing them.
