'Love test' to predict the success of relationships

Posted on: December 3, 2013 16:31:55

A brand new 'love test' has been designed by a group of scientists to try and predict how successful a marriage will be.

The research is based on the subconscious response to an image of a partner, which it says could be useful when determining how long a relationship will last, reports the BBC. The study, which has been published in the Journal Science, suggests that a negative gut reaction could mean that the couple will be unhappy later in life.

Professor James McNulty from Florida State University and lead author of the study told the news provider that the love test reveals how newly-weds honestly feel about each other, rather than what they will admit to each other or even themselves.

He told BBC News: "These immediate gut level responses seem to be pretty powerful in predicting whether people stay happy."

The researchers, who used more than 135 recently married couples, asked the newly-weds to rate their relationship in terms of "good", "bad", "satisfying" and "dissatisfying". The team then used showed them photos of their partner for a split second and asked them to answer, as quickly as possible, whether words like "great", "awesome", "horrible" and "scary" were positive or negative words.

Researchers say that the speed in which they answered the question determined their true feelings about their partner.

It is based on the principle of association and whether a photo of your partner puts you in a positive or negative state of mind. Anyone feeling positive would identify positive words like "great" quicker than negative words such as "scary and horrible" and vice versa, according to the study.

Although all of the newly-weds were positive and happy about their relationship, the results from the gut reaction love test were very different.

The research team then met with the couples every six months for a four-year period and found that, on average, those who had negative gut reactions were more likely to say that they were unhappy as the marriage wore on, while some had divorced.

If you have been recently divorced, online dating could give you the chance to meet your new partner.ADNFCR-2828-ID-801668262-ADNFCR
