Experiment: Being a 'yes husband' can make you unhappy

Posted: Updated:

"Yes, Dear." If you find yourself always agreeing with your wife you may want to start expressing your true thoughts and feelings. A new social experiment found that if a husband lets his wife have the last word he could become unhappier.

New Zealand doctors had a husband purposely yes his wife to death. The man wanted out of the relationship fast, while the wife's happiness quotient was only raised moderately.

Megan Fleming, a couples and sex therapist, says if any one partner needs to be right all the time, neither will be truly happy, just like the study suggests, and the couple's relationship will likely be doomed.
