Attitude of gratitude

A recent UGA study found that frequently saying “thank you” is a trait in healthy marriages.

Expressions of gratitude can help ease the marital stress, according to the study from the College of Family and Consumer Sciences, which was picked up by news outlets worldwide.

Study co-author Ted G. Futris, an associate professor of human development and family science, told the Daily Mail, “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.”
