Marriage is so satisfying that you do not believe in fate or fortune-telling



When you get married, you have to make a number of important decisions together, such as where to live together, the number of children, and how to teach. In such cases, research results have been reported that do not rely on fate or fortune-telling, etc., ' A married couple who tries to solve the problem herself tends to have a higher degree of satisfaction with her marriage .'

Locus of control and marital satisfaction: Couple perspectives using Australian data-ScienceDirect

Quiz: Does destiny shape your decisions? Your answer could affect your marriage satisfaction

Researchers at the University of Colorado at Boulder find out about the relationship between control location and marriage satisfaction based on Australian household status, income, and labor dynamics data collected from over 7,600 households between 2001 and 2017. We conducted a survey.

The location of control is a concept of educational psychology where the cause of behavior and evaluation is sought from the inside (inside) or the other (outside). The person who is in control (introverted) thinks that it is 'Thank you for your efforts' when there is a good thing, and blames 'It is your fault' even if there is a bad thing. On the other hand, people who have control outside (extroverted) think that there are good things, `` thanks to others '' and `` good luck '', and if there are bad things, they are `` bad '' and `` bad luck '' And blame others.

As a result of the survey, it was found that when both of the couples are introverted, the satisfaction of marriage tends to be higher. For example, if both the couples do not believe in the “elements they can't do” such as fate and fortune-telling, the chances of having a happy marriage are high.



In addition, if the husband and wife have the same control, they often have a similar view on how to solve the problem, so marriage is likely to be positive. However, the research team argues that being introverted is more necessary for a more satisfying marriage than having the same control.

Furthermore, focusing on cases where the location of control differs between couples, we found that when men are extroverted, men's marriage satisfaction tends to decline significantly over time. However, the same trend was not observed in women.

And the location of the control depends greatly on the situation of deciding something in the common life. For example, when “a woman with an introverted control” and “a man with an extroverted control” are married, a man often responds that “the work of the household is left to the woman”. I found that there were few cases of joint management. However, it seems that there were many cases where the female side did not recognize that it was left to me.

“The results of this survey apply to couples who are considering marriage, because they are active economists such as couple therapies,” said Lee Wanshen, an applied economist at Deakin University. “If you do n’t take action, your control will never change.”
