Relationship experts have identified four key traits that contribute to a happy and successful relationship, so they claim.
These traits, including perceptual, behavioral, assortative, and interactive factors, play a significant role in forming lasting love.
Those who showed emotional accessibility and responsiveness were found to be the most “competent” in their relationship.
Similarity also played an important part in compatibility.
Couples who were similarly intelligent, attractive, wealthy, and kind had better relationships.
In a Elsevier study, led by Western Kentucky University, experts spoke to 171 couples.
Michelle R. Persich Durham, the lead author of the study said: “Romantically competent people tended to view relationships more positively and were less prone to relationship worries and doubts.
“It was also found that they tend to date partners who were similarly competent and who described themselves as having intrinsic qualities such as kindness, as opposed to extrinsic qualities like money and status.”
The study involved couples responding to 10 fictional scenarios that presented various relationship problems.
Their answers were analyzed to assess their romantic competence and satisfaction in the relationship.
The findings revealed that partners who were “accessible and responsive” showed the highest levels of satisfaction in their relationships.
These partners were categorized as having “behavioral competence.” On the other hand, partners who displayed more antisocial behaviors were considered “less skillful” in their relationships.
