THAT’S HOW MANY COM­MIT­MENT PAT­TERNS THERE ARE THAT DE­TER­MINE WHETHER A COU­PLE WILL MARRY.

A study by the Univer­sity of Illinois iden­ti­fied th­ese types of re­la­tion­ships—dra­matic, part­ner fo­cused, so­cially in­volved, con­flict rid­den—and found that dat­ing cou­ples who are “part­ner fo­cused” (where they value each other above any­thing else) are most likely to marry. No prizes

for guess­ing that “dra­matic” cou­ples are least likely to make it down the aisle.
