Movies Can Save Marriages?

Movies Can Save Marriages?

Romantic comedies are not everyone's cup of tea, but they could help save your marriage. Researchers say that couples who disucssed five movies about relationships over a month cut the three-year divorce rate for newlyweds in half. To find this, researchers divided nearly 15- couples into three groups, and one group was designated the "movie-and-talk" group. Researchers found that couples who discussed movies about relationships were able to reduce their divorce-and-separation rate to 11-percent, compared to a rate of 24-percent among couples in the control group. Researchers say the method worked as well as going to a trained therapist for the couples, who used the fictional relationships in the movies to explore behaviors they practiced in their own real-life relationships and fix them.
