Why husbands who give in to their wives have better marriages – (Says science.) Everybody seems to have some piece of marriage advice: don’t go to bed angry, don’t sweat the small stuff, and count to ten before you speak. Advice is great, especially when it works, but it can be exhausting trying to pick out the useful pieces of advice among all the counsel a couple can get.

Dr. John Gottman of The Gottman Institute has made it his life’s work to study the many aspects of marriage and to find out the skills that couples actually need to strengthen their marriages.
Gottman and his colleagues studied 130 newlywed couples for six years in an effort to find ways to predict which kind of marriages succeeded and which failed.
The researchers found that men who allow their wives to influence them have happier marriages and are less likely to divorce. Not only is this skill not reserved to heterosexual couples, the research showed that gay and lesbian couples are much better at it than straight couples.
In the study, the researchers found that marriages that were successful and worked well all had one thing in common: the husband was willing to give in to his wife.
