Happily married couples aren’t smarter, richer, or more psychologically astute than others. They have simply hit upon a dynamic that keeps their negative thoughts and feelings about each other (which all couples have) from overwhelming their positive ones.

  17. I would be out of a job if this classroom was the norm. It features a 4th grade class in Kanazawa, where the teacher encourages students to keep journals, read them out loud in class, and then share deep, ordinarily inaccessible emotions with the rest of the students. For example, in the first section, they talk about death. Most teachers would shy away from talking about such subjects in class — they might deem it inappropriate, or opt to spend the time doing other stuff, or maybe it’s just not customary to talk openly about such deep emotions in school.
