Thank goodness the Department of Health and Human Services is here to solve all of our marital issues. What would we do without government?
From HHS HealthBeat with Ira Dreyfuss:
This isn’t about who wins the argument – but a study of hot marital fights indicates that when the wife calms down, the couples are more happy. Researcher Lian Bloch of the Pacific Graduate School of Psychology in Palo Alto found that in a study she did at the University of California, Berkeley. She looked at data that included recorded arguments by long-time husbands and wives.
“The marriages that were the happiest were the ones in which the wives were able to calm down quickly during marital conflict.”
Bloch says calm wives were able to look constructively for ways to deal with the emotions and talk about ways to solve the problems. Happiness didn’t change if the husband calmed down quickly.
Big h/t to Ace for spotting this nonsense:
1. Thank God the #Shutdown is over so we have government workers back to updating websites with crap that's already on Jezebel and PopSugar and all the Mommy Blogs.
2. I cannot think of a worse thing to say to an angry woman than "Calm down, you're being too emotional." Or a not-angry woman. Basically, only a virgin Pointdexter scientist would think this was something he should tell a woman.
3. If this were a Republican President's HHS linking this, what would the Left's and Media's (but I repeat myself) #WarOnWomen Threat Alert System be up to now? Red, right?
