Apparently, in just 21 minutes a year, you can make sure you probably never get divorced. You've GOT to be able to spare the time for that, right?
A new study out of Northwestern University in Illinois found that if married couples each write THREE SHORT ESSAYS during the year, they're more likely to have happy, satisfied marriages.
Once every four months, both of you should sit down for seven minutes and write an essay from the other person's perspective. Talk about your married life, your arguments, and where you disagree.
The researchers found that afterward, both of you will see a boost in your feelings of love, passion, intimacy, trust, and commitment. You won't stop arguing . . . but your arguments will be shorter. And your chance of divorce goes WAY down.
The researchers found this works, quote, "whether people were married for one month, 50 years, or anywhere in between."
