Happiness in marriage is entirely a matter of chance

Factors happy and unhappy marriage

One of these factors is whether the partner fulfills the role expected of it whatever it is. Curiously, more important for satisfaction of both partners in a marriage is the realization of expectations for the role of wife. Wives is actually more responsive to the expectations of the role of their wives than vice versa. Happiness in marriage can be predicted based on several factors, the absence of which makes it possible to foresee the occurrence of divorce. Compared with spouses wives were somewhat less satisfied with marriage and seems to have more occasions to complain. Married men have much better physical and mental health of a single, but a similar benefit for married women is very – small. When married, the woman must make greater efforts to adapt, and this is a serious source of stress. It is often isolated at home, boredom perform housework and have less influence in decision making. Women are happier if they work and have an equal voice in decision making.
Sex and comradeship are very important for marriage. Accuracy of estimates of the degree of satisfaction with the marriage can be improved, taking into account the frequency of negative interactions. Perspective of the exchange theory is that the close relationship each partner is concerned about the welfare of another, happy to see him happy, so in fact reported “profits” and “cost” of both partners.

Couples in which each seeks to obtain “compensation” for themselves, generally have less happy marriages. It is further development of the exchange theory. As we saw in many aspects of marriage is a comprehensive union of two people. A a small community, usually with common children, a common home and own independent lifestyle. This gives rise to various types of satisfaction and connects the two partners in a community where everyone depends on many other things.

Nicely written article. I agree with your insight. Many marriages can be saved, with work, and a willingness to change the things that are not working. The problem seems to be that many couples that are struggling, don’t quite know what they can do to make a positive difference in their relationship. With a bit of insight, they can save their marriage.
