A Proven Formula for a Happy, Healthy Marriage

How a Simple Ratio Can Transform Your Relationship

5 to 1.

This simple ratio can keep your marriage thriving.

According to the Gottman Institute, a healthy relationship experiences 5 (or more) positive interactions for every negative one.

Couples who have a low ratio of positive interactions to negative interactions are more likely to experience:

  • Conflict

  • A lack of intimacy

  • Even divorce

In contrast, couples who have a high ratio of positive interactions to negative interactions tend to have:

  • Better communication

  • More intimacy

  • Longer-lasting relationships

Pay close attention to your interactions with your wife.

Are you engaging in negative behavior like defensiveness, stonewalling, or criticism?

Or are you seeking out positive interactions like being affectionate, sharing appreciation, or engaging in shared activities?

Improve your ratio.

Be a 5 to 1 kind of husband.

Create a cycle of love, trust, and support in your marriage.
