In this series, we are equipping those recently married, or just about to be—and everyone else eager to learn the most important factors that will help create a great marriage. After 18 years of research and 12 nationally-representative studies with more than 40,000 men and women, we can say with confidence that many of these factors are far more simple than people realize—we just need to know them! This is the fourth article in the series. Share it with those who are newly married—or just about to be!
