Building Marital Happiness for South Asian Couples

Research documents the marriage advantage. In other words, successful and happy marriages contribute to our physical and mental health and provide us with a sense of well being. We live longer, are happier and more productive. However, several studies also show that the marriage advantage doesn’t extend to those in troubled relationships, which can leave a person far less healthy than if he or she had never married at all. One recent study suggests that a stressful marriage can be as bad for the heart as a regular smoking habit. For South Asian immigrants as well as second generation couples, building a successful relationship that both values cultural traditions and also helps us succeed in American culture can be complicated. This brochure provides some helpful information about improving your marital relationships.
