According to a study we published here in 2018, the longer the marriage lasts, the more frequent the quarrels between the couple and their place take on humor and mutual understanding. For 13 years, researchers have been following married couples, who have between 15 and 35 years of marriage. They found that it is precisely the early years of the marriage that are characterized by conflicts because the couple faces more abrasive challenges to relationships such as raising young children and economic challenges. As the couple grow older, they tend to joke with each other and have a greater understanding of each other, which opens a new and more forgiving era in their marriage.
2. People in relationships are usually healthier
According to a study we published here in 2017, marital life lowers the risk of premature death, for those with the risk of heart disease, such as cholesterol or high blood pressure. Previous research has even found that marriage improves a person's chances of recovering from a heart attack. And that's not all - an American Cancer Prevention Authority study in California that investigated close to 800,000 cancer patients found that marriage also contributes to life extension in patients with advanced stages of the disease.
3. Still, sometimes it's better to be single
A study we published in 2016 showed that single people's lives provide more than those of married couples. According to the study, presented at a meeting of the American Psychological Association, bachelors are not "lonely" and more likely to keep in touch with their parents, siblings, friends, neighbors and co-workers - support, meet and consult with them. In contrast, it is precisely after marriage that people tend to become more isolated and closed. "Dealing with the disadvantages of loneliness can sometimes overshadow the benefits of living alone," said La Bella De Paolo, the research firm at the time.

4. Women are more likely to lose interest in sex
And back to the relationship, because, after all, Valentines Day, and this time the subject that has many concerns - the fading sexual desire. Well, according to a study we published in 2017, women are twice as likely to lose interest in sex in relationships. According to the study, which examined thousands of British couples, 34 percent of women reported a decline in desire, compared to just 15 percent of men. If you are looking for half a full glass, you should know that researchers have found that people who openly communicate with the couple about sexual intercourse have reported less of a loss of desire. Other and not very surprising factors that influenced the data were small children at home and a significant gap between the things the couple likes to do in bed.

5. Couples not sleeping enough - many more
The early years of marriage are usually characterized by small children, and small children are usually characterized by the ability to destroy their parents' sleep. Which is a problem, since a study we published in 2017 shows that sleep deprivation is detrimental to couples. The researchers interviewed 43 couples and found a particularly close relationship between poor sleep and more hostile and heated arguments. In fact, they found that couples who slept less than seven hours a night experienced ugly and aggressive fights. And there are not many young parents who are older than that. "When people sleep less than the hours they need, it's like looking at the world through black glasses," explained study leader Dr. Janice Kikolt-Glasser of the University of Ohio.

6. People stay in failed relationships because they rely on time wasted
Some people manage to survive the hardship of the early years, and some choose to break up (one of each couple divorces, to remind you). But there are also some who choose to live in unsuccessful and unsatisfactory relationships for years. why is it happening? According to a study we published in 2016, this is because of the "lost cost" effect. This concept, which is a customer of the world of economics and politics, actually refers to the stage where we realize that we are wasting time, but if we have already wasted it so far, we might as well remain. In poker, this is the stage where you keep betting on a bad hand, simply because you've already spent too much money on it. According to the researchers, the reason is, of course, psychological and it lies in the human nature that is programmed to avoid failure, sometimes even at the cost of our own happiness. We simply would rather try to fix than start everything from scratch.
