Recent research has shined a light on the possibility of cognitive ability having an effect on romantic relationships in a rather substantial way.

The aforementioned study has concluded that a better ‘working memory capacity’ is tightly connected to the observable decrease in seriousness and extremity in relationship problems.

In the words of Levi R. Baker who is the co-author of the study, as well as an assistant professor at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and an associate editor for Personal Relationships: 

“I’ve been interested in relationship problem solving for quite some time. Just about every relationship encounters problems from time to time, but it is how people resolve those problems that determines whether their relationships are satisfying and lasting.”
