Is your Marriage in Trouble? ~The Gottman Institute

Have high standards.Happy couples have high standards for each other. The most successful couples are those who, even as newlyweds, refused to accept hurtful behavior from one another. Low levels of tolerance for bad behavior in the beginning of a relationship equals a happier couple down the road.
So marriages that accept hurtful behavior are in trouble. Makes sense.
