Is Eye-Rolling Killing Your Relationship?
If you are as big an eye-roller as I am, you’ll have reason to pause and reconsider your eye-rolling ways after reading the conclusions of relationship experts about the dangers of looking skyward with your partner.
They say eye-rolling could be the number one sign of future trouble in relationships. Oops! I accidentally let out an unintentional eye-roll while typing that last sentence! When it comes to my eyes, I’ve got a bad case of the rolls.
Anyway, here’s the knock on Eye-rolling, according to a Fox News report.
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.
