“I used to think that finding the right one was about the man having a list of certain qualities. If he has them, we’d be compatible and happy. Sort of a checkmark system that was a complete failure. But I found out that a healthy relationship isn’t so much about the sense of humor or intelligence or attractive. It’s about avoiding partners with harmful traits and personality types. And then it’s about being with a good person. A good person on his own, and a good person with you. Where the space between you feels uncomplicated and happy. A good relationship is where things just work. They work because, whatever the list of qualities, whatever the reason, you happen to be really, really good together.” ~ Deb Caletti

It may be hard to believe that there is a science behind something as emotionally complex as love. However, there is much scientific research behind what goes into a happy couple. For example, happy couples have 5 positive interactions for each negative one, while couples that ultimately end their relationship have less than one positive interaction for each negative one. Fall somewhere in between? Don’t worry. There are many ways to create positivity in your relationship. Work on giving more compliments, reliving a fun memory, and making time for intimacy.

The Science Behind a Happy Relationship infographic discusses different positivity boosting stats and facts to making a happy relationship, as well as some tips and tricks to achieve them.
