John Gottman’s research over the past four decades has helped us understand what makes–or breaks–marriages. This research shows us seven specific habits that can help couples create a harmonious lifelong relationship. Straightforward yet profound, these seven principles provide couples with a road map for resolving conflicts, creating new common ground, and achieving greater levels of intimacy.

Here are Gottman’s seven principles for making marriage work.
