We're John and Julie Gottman, relationship psychologists who studied over 3,000 couples in our lab. Ask us anything!
Happy Valentine’s Day Reddit!
John and Julie Gottman here from The Gottman Institute. We built the "Love Lab" in Seattle where we observed more than 3,000 couples—some for as long as 20 years—to understand how to predict relationship success in 15 minutes with 94% accuracy. In addition to writing the New York Times bestseller, The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work, we recently published our newest book, Eight Dates: Essential Conversations for a Lifetime of Love, which is available now.
Ask us anything.
UPDATE: We’re out of time, everybody. Thank you for these deeply intelligent and honest questions. We appreciate your participation and welcome you to reach out to us on our website or social media (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram). Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!
