Ladies: ‘Cold feet’ may predict divorce | Weird News – NewsRadio610 WIOD – News | Traffic | Weather 24/7
Ladies: If you’re having doubts about marrying your beau, you might want to take a step back. New research shows that a woman’s hesitation before her wedding might predict a bumpy road ahead.
“People think everybody has premarital doubts and you don’t have to worry about them,” Justin Lavner, a UCLA doctoral student in psychology who led the study, said in a statement. “We found they are common but not benign. Newlywed wives who had doubts about getting married before their wedding were two-and-a-half times more likely to divorce four years later than wives without these doubts. Among couples still married after four years,husbands and wives with doubts were significantly less satisfied with their marriage than those without doubts. ”
Lavner and his team studied 232 couples in Los Angeles during the first few months of marriage and then checked in on the spouses every six months for four years.
