Transcript for Research Shows Decisiveness Leads to Strong Marriage
Top of the "Heat index" new relationship research trending big in "The New York times" now. It reveries that cups who are deliberate about making big decisions like defining their relationship deciding to live together have stronger marriages than couples who slide through the big dig. Makes sense. Makes a lot of sense. Many cups who live together didn't sit down and talk about that decision beforehand and when couples let those big events happen without having real conversations it can lead to a weaker marriage. All about communication. What was also interesting people, young people today don't know what counts as a date. Are we dating, are we not? There are very unclear lines. I think it's only going to get worse with our texting world and all of that social media. No one is having real conversations. And nobody wants to have them because they're tough, right? They're obviously helpful. So and I think once you dive in, you really it Syria it really that tough? Well, yeah. Yeah it is sometimes but you got to do it. Scary. Also in the "Heat index" this morning, a lot of people talking about this. "The sopranos," seven years after it went off the air David chase the creator of the hit show speaking out about Tony soprano's fate following that iconic series finale. Remember that. It left us all wondering if an interview with vox chase says Tony's not dead. I always wondered. He's just sitting there. That music and just wondered was a gunman coming in. Wonder if your TV was still working. Yeah. Whether or not he lived or died is not exactly the point. In a new statement released overnight a rep for chase said the statement was actually taken out of context. He says "The final scenes of "The sopranos" raises a spiritual question that has no right or wrong answer. It's an enigma wrapped in a riddle, everybody." He didn't want that out there and got upset when the question was asked. A true artist. It was a great ending. It was. Hey, seven years later and we're still talking about it. Yeah. So we want to know are you still talking about it? Or are we crazy? No, let us know what you think happened to Tony in the finale of "The sopranos." All you need to do is tweet us at #socialsquare.
