Most of us have heard the phrase "Happy wife,happy life". But is this more than a convenient rhyme? A new study found that the happier the wife is in a marriage, the happier the husband. Previous studies have found a lot of benefits to a happy marriage.
"I think it comes down to the fact that when a wife is satisfied with the marriage, she tends to do a lot more for her husband," says Prof. Carr, "which has a positive effect on his life." She adds that because men are typically less vocal about their relationships, "their level of marital unhappiness might not be translated to their wives." Prof. Carr says that being in a better quality marriage "was linked to greater life satisfaction and happiness" for both spouses.The team says the study is significant because marriage quality can affect the health and well-being of older people as they age. Prof. Carr adds that marriage quality "provides a buffer against the health-depleting effects of later life stressors and helps couples manage difficult decisions regarding health and medical decision making."
Do you see where are we going? By making your wife happier you make yourself healthier. A lot of men would say " it is not my fault that she is unhappy, I didn't do anything". Exactly, you don't do anything, how can your wife or girlfriend be happy? Women are romantic creatures, we want to have romance in our lives, we want to experience passion in our relationship. And what can be more romantic then bringing home flowers without a reason? You will see how big impact such a small gesture can make.
