    1. John Gottman is in charge of a “Love Lab” and his research deals with what makes marriages thrive or fail (By John Gottman). I read about him in my social psychology class last semester, and he basically invites couples that have been married for a year into his lab and tells them to fight on an issue they have conflict over. Based off of this fight, he is very accurate at determining if these people will stay together or get divorced within the next fifteen years. He looks into several different factors, such as contempt, when coding their behaviors, to see “recipes” for success or failure.
