Couples Who Fight Live Longer According To Science

This revelation is science-basedThis study was done on 192 married couples over the course of 32 years. The aim was to find out if the behavior of their partners influenced their mortality. Every couple was asked a number of questions about conflicts in their family life and how they handle them, and everyone came up with his or her own answer.

The results revealed a greater difference in response styles between a wife and husband, they were linked to the increased risk of early death. In a situation where one of the partners tends to choke back anger while the other vents it out, the risk of death almost doubles. Experts suggest that the most advantageous way to deal with fights is to have a blazing dialogue where each partner speaks out about their pains and doubts.

Fights can be beneficial if you know one thingYou should remember that family conflicts aren’t necessarily bad for your health. Although you may not believe this after experiencing unpleasant feelings of devastation and disappointment that go along with fights. But sometimes it’s even difficult to breathe or calm down your racing heart during an argument.

However, a new study shows that family conflicts can become the key to a considerably longer life. But researchers say that if you want to live a longer, healthier life, you have to match fighting styles with your spouse, and this is the only way to make things work.

Silence never helps to overcome a problemIt is very important to express your feelings because partners who respond differently to a conflict are usually not satisfied with how the fight was handled. Take for example, a husband wanted to turn blue airing his grievances while his wife decided not to respond and avoid conflict altogether, refusing to let her own emotions out. Situation like this can lead to continuous stress, increased tension in family life, and a negative impact on the spouses’ health. Additionally, at some point, everything that was bottled up will come out and the same pattern will repeat itself.

Opening up is the only way for your partner to understand what hurts youIt has been proven that those couples who are able to match their response syles have fewer fights according to research, and based on the above, maintain better health. Together they find the right exit for their emotions and agree on something that is beneficial for both of them.

Next time when you experience a fight with your partner, try to pay attention to the fighting styles you and your partner usually use. If you notice that your response is different and don’t feel satisfaction when the fight is over, this is a great time to discuss the matter. Maybe this will help you get along better in the future.
