None — A new study by Ohio State University has revealed that couples who argue
on their honeymoon are more likely to have a stormy marriage over the long
term compared with newlyweds that get on well. As couples grow older together
their rate of arguing is likely to stay the same. The researchers separated the
respondents into high, middle and low conflict marriages and found those in
the latter group were more likely than others to say they shared decision-making
with their spouses. These people were also more likely than those who reported
high levels of conflict to say they believed in traditional, life-long marriage.
The findings were published in the Journal of Family Issues.
