While I was still trying to wake up this morning I listened to something that a friend shared on facebook. I don’t usually bother with talks or you tube videos via facebook, but the topic was about a 75 year Harvard study on happiness.
I was quickly roused out of my drowsiness as the speaker said the words “living in the midst of high conflict is really bad for us. High conflict marriages without much affection are very bad for our health, in fact worse than the experience of getting divorced.”
The talk had nothing to do with a study into relationships affected by Asperger’s Syndrome, but I’m sure everyone reading this thought will relate to his words.
I have since found the link to this talk, and listened to it again. It’s very good. The link is below. I wondered if it could even be something our AS partners would listen to, being a “Harvard study” and all that!
