A study in London shows that smart dudes just don't cop to infidelity.
Stop me if you've heard this one: Men who cheat are misogynist pigs who wish they could just club women over the head and drag them back to their lair to have their way with them. Totally over-blowing it, right? Not so black-and-white, right? Sometimes there are circumstances, right? You can't expect powerful, charming and rich men to just turn it off, right? Whatever your stance on male infidelity, know this: men who cheat aren't the sharpest tools in the shed (though some of them are tools in general).
This word game could predict a breakup before you're actually ready to end the relationship.
Words are more powerful than you think. A new word association game can reveal things about your relationship that you may not be aware of. Isn't it scary when scientists can predict your breakup before you do?
A new study shows that married men have more money than bachelors. Why?
According to a new study by the Pew Research Center, married men are leading richer lives. Literally. Here's the breakdown: the median household income for married men has gone up by 60 percent since 1970, while the income for single men has only shot up by 16 percent. The trade-off for succumbing to a life limited to one sexual partner for the rest of one's life? Maybe. Though Pew has several other, more logical explanations.
New study finds that the best sex may not be with the one you love.
A depressing new study that depressingly found that 63 percent of married women would rather get extra sleep or catch up on their reading than have sex with their husbands may also have depressingly pinpointed why: Less than half of women surveyed say they married the best sex of their lives.
A study shows that holding hands with a loved one is really good for your health.
Why is it that when we're upset, stressed, or scared we instinctively reach for our partner's hand? Or conversely, why is it that we always seem to reach for our partner's hand to comfort them when they're upset? Well a recent study by University of Virginia psychologist, Dr. James Coan, showed that the answer doesn't lie between our fingers, but in our brains. The study involved subjecting 16 happily-married women to stressful situations while monitoring their brain activity. The results showed less activity in the stress-related areas of the women's brains even while holding a stranger's hand, and a whole lot less when they held their hubby's hand.
Study shows men become crazy and risk their lives in order to attract women.
A group of Australian researchers rounded up a group of 96 young men and had them perform skateboard tricks. All the skaters first did a trick in front of a man and then in front of an attractive woman. Overwhelmingly, the researchers found that each man was riskier when in front of the woman.
What are you and your partner talking about during heart-to-hearts? 10 things happy couples discuss.
Over the weekend, Psychological Science published a study saying that people are happier when they spend more time discussing meaningful topics than engaging in small talk. Seventy-nine college students had their conversations recorded and analyzed by researchers, who distinguished between chit-chat about the food or the weather from discussions about philosophy, education, or religion. Subjects who reported the greatest amount of satisfaction spent only 10 percent of their conversation on small talk, while the unhappiest subjects kept 28.3 of their talking time in the shallow end.
Is he a family man? Why you should date a guy who lives with his extended family.
Ah, the recession strikes again. After a good 20 years in hiatus, the multi-generational household is back—not in vogue, but in necessity. According to a study released by the Pew Research Center today, the delay in first marriage, the influx of immigrants, and of course, recent financial issues have given rise to extended households, which peaked during World War II.
