To reach this conclusion, the researchers analyzed 42 couples between the ages of 24 and 61, married and with a 3-year relationship. To achieve the results, everyone took a menu consisting of eggs, turkey sausages, crackers, and gravy that made up 930 calories and 60 grams of fat. Two hours later they were presented with a series of susceptible issues that could end up in conflict for them to debate.
