(IANS) If you wish to give your marriage a smooth ride, make sure both of you get sound sleep every night. A new study has found that a good night's sleep can buffer the effects of negative events on a couple's general satisfaction with their marriages.

"The universality of our findings is important," said one of the researchers, Heather Maranges from Florida State University in the US.
