What's the secret to a long and happy marriage? Smile when he picks his nose, trims his toenails on the sofa and chews with his mouth open

The secret to a long and happy marriage is often described as a mix of good communication, a healthy sex life and the occasional romantic gesture.
But new research suggests that the perfect formula is rather less Mills and Boon and a bit more Alf Garnett, with the ability to overlook faults and overcome setbacks key to keeping a marriage alive.
Psychologists at Rutgers University in Newark, US, say that those who learn to accept partners who pick their nose, trim toenails on the sofa or chew food with their mouth open, are well on the way to marital bliss.

Dr James Bradley, who led the study, said: ‘Our findings indicate resilience may be one of the key predictors of marital satisfaction.
‘It’s an important tool that can be used to navigate the stormy waters likely to hit any marriage.’
