The Results that Shocked Even Researchers

Tons of studies have shown that certain factors predict a strong relationship, so a team of researchers including Robert Epstein, Ph.D., senior research psychologist at the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology, set out to determine which skills were the most important. After identifying seven major factors, they had 2,201 people complete a relationship skills assessment online, known as the Epstein Love Competencies Inventory, to see which ones were most predictive of current relationship satisfaction.

It wasn't too surprising that communication was at the top, but the researchers were shocked to see that life skills and knowledge of your partner were also major factors. In fact, the other competencies--like love, sex, stress management, and conflict resolution--didn't even come close to predicting current satisfaction.
