Smiles May Make Marriages Last Forever

Researchers say they may be able to predict whether a marriage will last, just by flipping through a couple's wedding album!

Researchers at DePauw University in Indiana looked through childhood and wedding pictures of about 650 husbands and wives. They say those with the most intense and brightest smiles on their wedding day were more likely to remain happily married. Newlyweds who didn't look at the camera or had what researchers thought were fake smiles were more likely to get divorced.

Experts say people with brighter personalities may also be better equipped to weather problems that can typically arise during marriage.
