Happy couples have five positive interactions for every ONE negative interaction. Couples
who wind up divorced have 0.8 positive interactions for every negative one.
Positive interactions are things like giving a compliment . . . showing your appreciation . . .
reminiscing about a good memory or reliving it . . . and just doing something nice for the other person.

But the MOST important positive interaction is reacting well to the other person's GOOD
NEWS. When they have good news, you need to be enthusiastic, ask questions, congratulate them, and relive the experience with them.

The happiest couples have sex two to three times a week.
