Eye-rolling is killing your relationship

Consistently rolling your eyes during fights may be a sign that your relationship is doomed. According to Happify, certain behaviors can determine whether or not couples have what it takes to achieve long-term happiness.

According to the co-founder of the Relationship Research Institute, rolling your eyes when your partner speaks is a sign of contempt. His research shows contempt is the number one predictor of divorce… beating out criticism, defensiveness, and stonewalling.

Eye-rolling is also disrespectful. In surveying more than 10,000 happily married women, and interviewing couples happily married for 25 years or more, the most important ingredient in the recipe for a happy marriage was mutual respect.
