Neurotic newlyweds are happier if they have more sex. That’s the gist of a study published in the Social, Psychological and Personality Science journal. Neurotic people tend to get upset about little things, change moods quickly and worry about everything. Turns out, a roll in the hay makes things all good. We knew that already though, right?
Another interesting tidbit in the study was the frequency of sex. The 72 couples that participated had sex once a week on average during the first six months of marriage and three times a month by the fourth year of marriage. Newlyweds getting it in only once a week on average? Is it just me or does that seem low?
Neurotic spouses, go get your “medicine!”
