Which couples are happier

When a couple has been together for a very long time, they begin to perceive themselves as a collective unit.

While some find the notion of excessive interdependence in relationships slightly irritating, according to recent research, couples who use "we" and "us" in conversation are more likely to be happier in love than those who don't.



Researchers from the University of California are investigating the link between the use of first-person plural pronouns (such as "we," "us") for success in romantic relationships.

The team, led by psychologist Megan Robbins, analyzed 30 studies involving more than 5,000 participants, half of whom were married.

The researchers took into account five main factors, such as how long couples were together, their relationship behavior, participants' mental health, their physical condition, and how well they looked after themselves on a daily basis.



They concluded that the use of the "we" form had a beneficial effect on happier relationships across all age groups.
