The article features psychotherapist John Gottman. He studies behavior of couples using a coding system, then translates the data into numbers, which he used to create an approach that can predict a divorce with a 91% accuracy. Gottman and his wife, clinical psychologist Julie Schwartz Gottman, created a science-based couples therapy. His studies did not only focus on the factors that destroy marriage, but also on the things that help a marriage survive.
