The Effect of Neurotic Partners on Happiness

The Last Person You Want to Marry

Nature? Nurture? Mothers from hell? It's hard to say what exactly makes a person prone to misery, but we shouldn't have to wait until we're 54 to be happy. A new study found that genes account for only 50 percent of well-being, with external factors like work, weight, and love filling in the rest.

So what's the most effective way to sabotage happiness? Marry a neurotic person. People with neurotic partners were significantly less happy than those in emotionally stable couplings; however, they were not as unhappy as neurotic people themselves.

As a slightly neurotic person, I worry about this news.
