Researchers in Chicago think so. They found that couples who spent just seven minutes every few months writing short essays about their recent fights reported being less unhappy a year later than similar couples who didn’t do the assignments.  The approach was simple – each couple was asked to reconsider a recent argument from the perspective of a neutral well-wisher.  The couple was asked a simple essay question.  The average time responding to the question was only 7 minutes.  Couples that answered these simple questions only three times a year reported being happier over time.  Check out the full article and the mini marriage essay questions here.
