The Simple Science of Relationships

What are the essential qualities of a great relationship? Scientists and academics have spent entire careers investigating the nature of relationships, dating, and marriage, and yet their findings are inaccessible to ordinary people, hidden away in obscure journals and read only by other academics. Now the bestselling author of The 100 Simple secrets series has collected the most current and significant data from more than a thousand studies on relationships, and spells out the key findings in plain English.

The advice is not based on one persons unique experiences or opinions, but offers for the first time the research of noted scientists studying the lives and loves of average people, and each of the findings is accompanied by a true story that shows the results in action.

LOVE IS HARD TO CALCULATE: researchers have proven that a partners age, income, education, and religion are not related to the likelihood of relationship satisfaction.

ALWAYS TRYING TO WIN CAN LEAD TO MAJOR LOSS: People who feel a sense of competition with their partner are 37% less likely to feel that their relationship is satisfying.

LEAVE THE PAST IN THE PAST: More than 40% of people report that jealousy over a previous relationship is a source of disagreement in their current relationship.
