Study: Romantic comedies can save your marriage

Study: Rom-Coms Can Save Your Marriage

When it comes to Valentine's Day, many look for flashy gifts to impress their significant others -- but a new study found that the secret to a good marriage is actually staying at home and watching a romantic comedy.

The study involved 174 couples. Daily Mail says researchers discovered that just watching romantic comedies and then talking about them reduced the divorce rate from 24 percent to 11 percent in the first three years of marriage.

Turns out the key was to watch movies where love is more of a process, like 'Two for the Road' or 'Yours, Mine and Ours.'

So make sure to break out those romantic movies on the 14th, but don't skimp on the flowers ... just in case your significant other didn't hear about this study.

Yeah that dude looked totally romantic, liked the raised eyebrows when the subject of spending time together came up, lol. Bro, you met her, wooed her, proposed to her, loved her and supposedly cherish her, might want to make a stronger effort.

Uuuuhhhh...Excuse me but the movie The Days of Wine and Roses was hardly a romantic comedy. It was about alcoholism, and it did not have a happy ending. And it starred Jack Lemmon and Lee Remick, not Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr. You know Google would have shown you this had you bothered to look it up.

I agree Days of WIne and Roses not comedy. The C Grant-D Kerr she was referring to was An Affair to Remember. It just wasn't clear.

Hi Folks I as an employer who supplies housing for my emploees. I have a rule that you will posess a marrige licence or no one moves in. I don't allow shack up on my nickel. It has been mistaken that you shack up to not be responsible for the opposite sex. It is just a free ride to no where. Find the right person and marry them and live your life as GOD professes. Nothing is easy you must work at it, you are not your parents child any more, you have to creat a new life on your own and grow up.
