Study: Watching, Discussing Romantic Movies Cut Newlywed Divorce Rate From 24% to 11%
Can romantic movies save your marriage? A new study says they might be able to help.
A study published in the "Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology" found that watching and discussing romantic movies helped cut the divorce rate of newlywed couples from 24 percent to 11 percent.
Dana Perino said she and her husband watch romantic movies all the time and that he secretly likes them.
“Romantic comedies are to women what pornography is to men,” Greg Gutfeld said. “It creates unrealistic expectations about monogamy. Romantic comedies focus on the power of infatuation; they never show the relationship years later. Pornography focuses on men’s desire for biological novelty; we always want something different and new. Both could be damaging in different ways, but fun if you watch together.”
