CONTENT:

If you've ever been single, you've no doubt heard that perhaps your standards are just too high. But even in marriage, it's possible to expect too much from a partner—and that can result in real unhappiness, according to a new study published in the Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin.
Across the board, newlyweds were pretty satisfied with their marriages and had high standards. But higher standards were a bad thing for spouses who didn't work as well together or were more indirectly hostile. Conversely, when couples like these had lower standards, they tended to be happier in their marriages. “People who have weaker abilities, either because they have poor communication skills, external obstacles and financial pressures that stress the marriage, or personal vulnerabilities, do best if they demand less—otherwise they risk becoming disillusioned,” McNulty says.

参考译文1:

单身的时候肯定有人说过你的标准太高。但个性和社会心理学公报发表的一项新研究表明,婚后对伴侣期望太高可能会导致真正的不快。
在婚姻关系中,新婚夫妇最初会很满足,并对对方寄以过高期望。但是过高的标准对那些相处不理想甚至是冷战的配偶来说是并不是好事。相反地,当这样的夫妇降低标准时,他们的婚姻往往会更幸福。麦克纳尔蒂说:“因沟通缺乏和外界压力导致的婚姻生活压抑,或是个性的缺陷,会使一个人在婚姻中处弱势地位,为了降低风险,他会尽可能做到最好。”
