Health & Fitness This unexpected factor predicts whether love will last
100 vintage baby names that will make a resurgence
Get ahead of the game by calling your newborn one of these.The likes of Edie, Arthur and Ada are all prime examples of vintage names that have had a resurgence in recent years, but there are plenty more where they came from that haven't yet been revived.
Call us hopeless romantics, but we've always liked to imagine that long-lasting love has little do with wealth or status.
But, at least according to the results of one new study, it looks like money may have more of a bearing on relationships than we would have hoped.
Yep, new research from Cornell University claims that an unexpected factor may have an impact on a couple's likelihood of staying together: equality in income...
After studying data from large US surveys on income, covering over 60,000 people for almost 20 years, lead author Patrick Ishizuka found that cohabiting straight couples with equal earnings are the most likely to stay together.
The unexpected upside to spending time by yourself
Have you noticed this positive effect of 'me time'?Because new research has confirmed that spending small amounts of time alone can actually offer you one pretty big benefit...
'Equality appears to promote stability,' he said. 'Equality in men's and women's economic contributions may hold these couples together.'
On top of his, Ishizuka claims that couples are more likely to walk down the aisle once they have collectively attained a certain level of wealth, dubbed 'the marriage bar'.
'Once couples have reached a certain income and wealth threshold, they're more likely to marry,' he said.
'They want to have a house and a car and enough savings to have a big wedding; and they also want to have stable jobs and a steady income,' he said.
'It's really the couple's combined resources that seem to matter,' he concluded in his research, recently published in the journal Demography.
This is what an SPF number actually means
Obviously it means 'sun protection factor', but the specific number?Obviously they indicate the strength of the product, but what is the protection difference between SPF 15 and SPF 50?
Indeed, Ishizuka goes on to claim that couples with a low joint income are the most likely to split up...
'Economically disadvantaged couples are also more likely to separate,' he said.
Hmm, we reckon plenty of couples could prove him wrong!
