A recent study shows how neuroimaging can be used to approximate marital satisfaction. Married couples tended to show more synchronicity in brain networks, and the more in sync a couple was, the more satisfied they tended to be in their marriage.
These recent results suggest that real-time mental responses are associated with marital satisfaction and bonding. The new results are just one piece of the puzzle that is a marital relationship; of course it’s also important that both participants in a marriage are working towards individual mental wellness.
