In Why Marriages Succeed or Fail, John Gottman defines "successful marriages" as those that stay together for at least 25 years. He does this by studying 85 couples and conducting interviews with them for 4 years. He is a trained psychologist and has been researching marriage since 1986.

Gottman defines "marital success" as achieving what Gottman calls the "superb balance" of love and respect while still having mutual attraction. In a marriage, Gottman says there are three things that have to be in place: emotional stability, positive regard, and affection. To achieve this balance, Gottman suggests couples find ways to positively nurture each other and avoid trying to change one another.

According to John M. Gottman, Ph.D., author of the book, Why Marriages Succeed or Fail: And How You Can Make Yours Last, it's helpful for couples to identify "the four horseman of the apocalypse." The four horsemen are criticism (nagging), contempt (controlling), defensiveness (blaming), and stonewalling (withdrawing). If you can recognize these behaviors in your partner, pause and take a second look before reacting.
