Scientific Evidence that “Happy Wife, Happy Life” is True!

It’s not just a saying. Apparently, having a happy wife can lead to a happier life!

Marriage is full of mysteries - it's practically impossible to know what it takes to make a marriage happy. And if you're married, you'd do whatever you can to ensure that it's a happy one or else your life will be miserable, right? Apparently, all you really need to work on is making your wife happy, and the rest kind of just falls into place...

A man can be unhappy with his marriage but happy with his life, given that his wife is happy with the marriage. According to Deborah Carr, a sociology professor at the University of Rutgers, "A wife's happiness in a marriage has the power to overtake a husband's marital unhappiness to make his overall life quite pleasant." All of this data is consistent with a report published in the Journal of Marriage and Family.

Your wife's happiness is directly related to how happy your life will be!

Now this Pinoy dude obviously knows that but it didn’t stop him from squaring off with an obviously taller American guy.

Throughout the fight, the Filipino man did his best to inflict damage on his bigger opponent.
