Say "Cheese" for a Good Marriage

According to a study by scientists at DePauw University in Indiana, people who frowned a lot in photos when they were kids and teenagers are five times more likely to get divorced later in life than those who smiled in their photos. Unlike an earlier study that claimed happiness is “contagious,” the authors in this case don’t argue that smiling for photos causes a good marriage, but rather that smiling and a lasting marriage are somehow correlated. Good thing — otherwise, a zit would be the least of a kid’s worries on school picture day. [%comments]
