Over 37 years of research on love and marriage in 56 countries on all 7 of the world's continents with thousands of couples has taught us many things. First and foremost – no love has blossomed or been sustained without doing the simple things. Big things don’t matter until your relationship has mastered the art of doing the simple things day in and day out in your relationship with the one you love.
