New Study Claims People Who’ve Had More Sexual Partners Report Unhappier Marriages

Posted on by

first_img Share LifestyleRelationships New Study Claims People Who’ve Had More Sexual Partners Report Unhappier Marriages by: – August 25, 2014 Tweet A widely reported new study claims that people — especially women — who have multiple sexual parters before tying the knot, report unhappier marriages down the line.The study comes to us from The National Marriage Project, based off research from two University of Denver professors, Galena K. Rhoades and Scott M. Stanley, who looked at relationship data collected from 2007 to 2008 of 1,000 unmarried Americans ages 18 to 34. During the following five years, 418 of the participants got married.Rhoades and Stanley took a closer look at those marriages to see if factors, including participants’ sexual past, played a role in current marital quality.Couples’ relationship quality was measured using a four-item version of the Dyadic Adjustment Scale, focusing on relationship happiness, thoughts about separation, frequency of confiding in one another, and a general item about how well things are going (the full scale, however, contains 32 items).According to researchers, the 23 percent of participants who only had sex with their spouse prior to getting hitched reported higher quality marriages versus those who had other past sexual partners as well.They claim this finding is especially true for women, writing in the report, “We further found that the more sexual partners a woman had had before marriage, the less happy she reported her marriage to be.”On top of that, researchers say that participants who lived with an S.O. — who did not become their future spouse — also reported unhappier marriages.So why would more sexual or relationship experience be associated with worse outcomes later on?Rhoades and Stanley hypothesize in the report that “more experience may increase one’s awareness of alternative partners.” In other words, people who have a number of prior relationships may become dissatisfied more easily.But isn’t that another way to say they might be more aware of a bad relationship? Isn’t that a good thing?Indeed, while the data presented in The Marriage Project’s 418-person study is legitimate, experts say that the conclusions drawn from it — especially those which cast judgement on one’s sexual history and incite sentiments of slut-shaming — may not be entirely accurate.Researchers in this field, who were not involved with this particular study, told The Huffington Post that these findings should be taken with a grain of salt.“There are a wide variety of reasons that may lead people to have multiple partners before marriage and, independent of how many partners they have, also be less satisfied in marriage,” Dr. Jim McNulty, a social psychology professor from Florida State University who has published a plethora of research on the topic, wrote in an email.“For example, people who tend to avoid commitment in general may have more sexual partners and be less happy when they settle down. It’s not the fact that they have more sexual partners that leads them to be less happy, it’s the fact that they don’t really like commitment. I would be very surprised if having multiple sexual partners before marriage, independent of any other factor, has a direct causal influence.”In other words, correlation should never be confused with causation.“We cannot make any conclusions about cause-and-effect,” says Justin Lehmiller, PhD, sex educator and researcher at Purdue University, adding, “Could it be that multiple premarital partners impacts marital happiness? Maybe. But it could also be that people who have more partners have different personalities or different attitudes toward marriage or relationships.”Beyond that, Lehmiller says there may be flaws in the way data was analyzed — the way in which good marriages were separated from bad marriages was “rather odd” he says. “Even the authors admit that they were ‘arbitrary’ in their report. They defined ‘higher quality marriages’ as those in which individuals scored in the top 40 percent … Why the top 40 percent?”McNulty also points out that though the authors are respected researchers, the study was not reported by an academic journal nor was it peer-reviewed.Huffington Post 199 Views   no discussionscenter_img Sharing is caring!

Rodwell vows to keep winning

Posted on by

first_img Press Association Manchester City know they can do little but watch and hope this weekend as they await opportunities to get back into the title race. The champions could again find themselves 15 points behind leaders Manchester United at the top of the Barclays Premier League by the time they face struggling Aston Villa on Monday. That was the deficit they faced prior to playing Chelsea last Sunday after United’s victory the previous day and their rivals can strike another blow as they host Norwich on Saturday. With just 11 games remaining there is little time to turn the situation around but manager Roberto Mancini has suggested cutting the gap to six points before the April derby trip to Old Trafford could reignite the battle. And City midfielder Jack Rodwell said: “We hope they slip up.” center_img Yet although United were beaten by Norwich in November, they have not lost in the league since and Sir Alex Ferguson’s men are in control of their destiny. Rodwell added: “All we can do is win our games. If we don’t win our games and United don’t then we’ve only got ourselves to blame. We’ve just got to focus on our side.” Finishing second would be a clear disappointment for City after last season’s dramatic title success but the club still remains in fine shape. There is still the possibility of FA Cup glory and, if 2012 was removed from the equation, a runners-up spot would be a best final position since 1977. Striker Sergio Aguero believes there is plenty to build on. The Argentina international said: “With experience we’ll be able to grow even more year by year and whatever happens this season, we will learn from it and use it to our advantage.” Mancini will give a fitness update on captain Vincent Kompany as he meets media to preview the trip to Villa Park. The Belgium defender has been out longer than expected after suffering a calf injury in the FA Cup fourth-round win at Stoke five weeks ago. It had been hoped he could return against Chelsea last weekend but Mancini revealed he had also injured his other calf. The 26-year-old has a history of trouble in that area. Mancini said: “It is not the same injury, it is a different calf. He has been unlucky and that means we are unlucky but we hope he will be back very quickly.” last_img read more

Davis pens three-year Saints extension

Posted on by

first_imgClub captain Kelvin Davis has become the latest Southampton player to commit his future to the club by signing a new deal until 2016. Press Association After Morgan Schneiderlin and Jason Puncheon last week penned new deals, the 36-year-old goalkeeper has followed suit. Davis is Southampton’s longest-serving player and has made 283 appearances since joining from Sunderland six and a half years ago. “When I first came to this club, to say that I would have been here for this period of time is something that I would have dreamed about,” Davis told the club’s official website, saintsfc.co.uk. “For that dream to have materialised and for me to be feeling good is something I am really, really pleased with.” center_img He added: “I’ve seen a few things – a few ups and downs – but since Nicola Cortese arrived with Markus Liebherr, the club has been on a journey.” Davis’ previous deal was due to expire at the end of next season and his new contract will take him through to his testimonial year. The goalkeeper had been on the verge of a move to West Ham in 2009 when the club, relegated to League One, was financially ruined, but Davis was quick to commit his future to the club and helped secure back-to-back promotions. “As club captain, Kelvin plays an extremely important role at Southampton,” Saints manager Mauricio Pochettino said. “His presence in the dressing room is second to none, and his experience has proved to be vitally important to the club as we look to achieve our aims. “He has been a massive part of this club during his six and a half years here, and there are few things in football that he hasn’t seen so far in his career. “Every successful team needs to have characters and people like Kelvin, so I’m delighted that he has committed himself to the club for a further three and a half years.” last_img read more

Windies players urged to maximise opportunities on Ireland tour

Posted on by

first_imgDUBLIN, Ireland,  (CMC) – Assistant coach Roddy Estwick has urged players to make the most of their opportunities in the Tri-Nations Series but says West Indies’ ultimate goal will be to win the tournament when it bowls off Sunday.The Caribbean side arrived here Wednesday for the series which will see them pitted against hosts Ireland and Bangladesh, in what will be their final audition ahead of the ICC World Cup which gets underway in England and Wales at month end.“You obviously want to win, you don’t go into any series not looking to win but what you want is for us to play good cricket, execute our plans well, enjoy each other’s company,” Estwick said on arrival.“[We want to] make sure the dressing room is a good place and that they’re fully contented with everything we do and they’re happy and enjoying playing for West Indies.”He added: “It should be a great experience for a lot of the younger players. It’s an opportunity for them to showcase their talents at this level. A lot of them haven’t played for the West Indies at this level before so it’s a great opportunity for them.“Even though they’re not going to the World Cup, it’s still important they go out and play good cricket and the ones that are going to the World Cup, this is the chance to get in some meaningful practice … so this tournament is going to be very important for a lot of different reasons.”West Indies are fielding an under-strength squad in the May 5-17 tournament, with the core of their side currently campaigning in the Indian Premier League.The inexperienced likes of opener John Campbell, batsman Sunil Ambris and all-rounder Raymon Reifer have all found spots in the 14-man unit, while experienced left-hander Jonathan Carter has been recalled following a two-year break.Estwick, recently returned to the coaching setup following a raft of changes to the management staff last month, said the Tri-Series was also a chance for these players to stake their claim for more permanent spots in the ODI squad.“It’s a big opportunity. [There are] one or two who’ve been out of the side and who’ve been given a chance to come back into the ODI setup so that’s important for them as well,” he pointed out.“And like I said, it’s an opportunity for lot of the younger players. When I look at the makeup of this squad in Ireland, it’s a very, very young squad so they should be looking forward to performing well, breaking into the ODI side and probably playing two for three World Cups going forward.”Following the Tri-Nations Series, West Indies will undergo a final preparation camp in Southampton from May 18-24 before taking on South Africa and New Zealand in official warm-up games in Bristol, on May 26 and 28.They open their World Cup campaign against Pakistan at Trent Bridge on May 31.last_img read more

NPFL: Rangers Consolidates after Crushing Ikorodu Utd 4-1

Posted on by

first_imgRangers consolidated their leadership of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) yesterday on the back of a 4-1 thumping of bottom club Ikorodu United.‘The Flying Antelopes’ now have 31 points from 17 matches.Abia Warriors moved into second place on the table with 30 points after they pipped Rivers United 1-0.Third-placed Kano Pillars were held to a goalless draw by visiting Heartland to now have 28.Francis Madu scored an own goal against his team Ikorodu United after just 10 minutes as Rangers piled on the pressure from the onset.Tope Olusesi made it 2-0 after 16 minutes and scored his brace five minutes later, before Ebiye Moses pulled a goal back for the visitors a minute later.Obinna Nwobodo wrapped up a convincing home win for Rangers four minutes from time.Elsewhere, Michael Olaha scored on 24 minutes to settle a scrappy contest between Abia Warriors and Rivers United.The Warriors won 1-0 in a game that promised so much but delivered so little from the perspective of genuine quality and aesthetic football.Heavy rains before kick-off rendered large sections of the pitch at the Umuahia Township Stadium almost unplayable.As a result, both sides, famed for attractive, possession-based football, struggled to bring their optimum game to the table.The hosts should have doubled their lead in the final minute of added time after Rivers United conceded a penalty with captain, Austin Festus, handling the ball in the box.Second half substitute, Chisom Chikatara produced a tame shot which was saved by the United goal keeper, Sunday Rotimi.“I was over confident. I thought that I had scored already. That’s why I missed,” Chikatara said of his shocking effort from 12 yards.The defeat sees United fall to sixth on the standings with 28 points from 17 matches while Abia Warriors rose two places and now occupy second place with 30 points from 16 matches.In Kano, Heartland FC of Owerri came off the best for it as they held Kano Pillars to a goalless draw in the encounter at the Sani Abacha Stadium, Kano.Pillars started with a bang, with Rabiu Ali shooting twice in the opening minutes but Heartland goalkeeper Ebere Obi showed the Naze millionaires as Heartlanders are fondly called were ready for battle.In was a highly tactical game in which both teams ensured they had their backsides well fenced before surging forward.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
