In a study on happiness for the United Nations, an important aspect for the stability and development of a couple was detected. While this factor isn't the one we would necessarily think of first, it sounds perfectly logical once it has been presented to us. Check out the video above for the full details!
John Helliwell is an economist at the University of British Columbia, who co-authored a study on happiness for the UN. In this study, based in particular on British surveys, the economist discusses the development of love and the factors that cause it.
After studying thousands of couples, the author came to a conclusion. The strongest couples are those where both partners consider themselves best friends. To find out if your partner could match this term, think back to the laughter, the conversation, and the way you confide in each other.
This factor obviously isn't the only one to take into account when gauging the happiness of a couple, but it may be the most important. If you do not consider your partner as your best friend, don't panic.
