Effect of Elasticity on Happiness in Human Relationships

An Elasticity constant describes the stretchablity of elastic objects like springs, rubber bands. The lower the constant, the more elastic or stretchable the spring is, and the higher the constant, the less flexible. We developed a questionnaire that quantifies the elasticity constant in human relationships. The hypothesis is that the lower the constant the easier going, and more flexible the partners are and the happier they are. The higher the constant, the less flexible and the more difficult the partner are.
