Stephen: Study shows opposites actually do attract

A Michigan State University study on personality and relationships found that couples with clashing personalities are just as likely to succeed.
Researchers surveyed 1,300 couples and took a look at their big five personality traits. While many couples were drawn to those with similar personalities, this was not crucial in making the relationship last.
In this study, partners who were more extraverted, agreeable, conscientious, open-minded, and less negatively emotional reported the most relationship satisfaction.
