A Movie May Save Marriage

Making it past the three-year itch could be as simple as popping in a DVD and watching other couples fight.

That’s the overarching conclusion of a new study out of the University of Rochester, which found that watching a film that examined the complexities of marriage and discussing the issues together as a couple can be just as effective at curbing divorce rates as traditional marriage counseling methods.

The findings, published in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, show that the movie method helped cut the divorce rate of newlywed couples from 24 percent to 11 percent at the three-year mark — the same success rate as supervised sessions conducted by trained therapists.

Some of the movies viewed during the study include: “A Star Is Born,” “As Good As It Gets,” “Children of a Lesser God,” “On Golden Pond,” and “Untamed Heart.”
