(Before It's News)

We've long maintained that things like Love, kindness and gratitude are what's needed to create a healthy and happy humanity. Not only in some vague, spiritual sense, but also in a very practical, tangible and easily observable sense. There is a wisdom in Love that goes beyond the mind's ability to rationalize. It's an inherent sense of right and wrong that transcends the old, religion-based moralistic systems that have failed to deliver on their promises.

Modern science has recently been discovering more and more to back this up as well. A recent study from the University of Georgia has found that “spousal expression of gratitude was the most consistent significant predictor of marital quality.”

“It goes to show the power of ‘thank you,'” said the study's lead author Allen Barton, a former doctoral student in the College of Family and Consumer Sciences and current postdoctoral research associate at UGA's Center for Family Research. “Even if a couple is experiencing distress and difficulty in other areas, gratitude in the relationship can help promote positive marital outcomes.”
