According to a new study by Rutgers University and the University of Michigan, men don’t react to a marital problem the way women do. Deborah Carr, Ph.D., the lead author and sociology professor at Rutgers says that women tend to get emotional about it and would prefer to talk it out while men would likely get frustrated over it adding that, "they don’t really want to talk about it or spend too much time thinking about it."

So how do you keep the love (and peace) in the relationship when you and your partner are having trouble in paradise? A new study published in the journal Personal Relationships states that showing gratitude for each other may help you get through the rough patches. Aside from that, the researchers also found that "positive relationship outcomes appear to be associated not only with being appreciative and possessing gratitude for one’s partner but also as the current study highlights, feeling appreciated and perceiving gratitude from one’s partner."

Ted Futris, an associate professor in the College of Family and Consumer Sciences and author of the study says, "We found that feeling appreciated and believing that your spouse values you directly influences how you feel about your marriage, how committed you are to it, and your belief that it will last."
