How can others tell if a couple is really happy to be married to each other and not just acting happy to give the appearance of a happy marriage and are there any give-away signs?
Answer just look at the way they look at each other, the eyes wont lie, look at their body language, is it in contradiction to their behavior. Does their "loving" behaviour l…ooked forced? Maybe, although you don't want to hear this, maybe its best you dont interfere, its better that they sort this out by themselves! Oh no... I don't want to interfere or meddle with anyone. I am just curious if an outsider can look at married couples and sort of be able to tell who might be happy to be married to their mates and who may not be, and maybe even tell if a couple is likely to breakup. Even in a church membership, where the couples mean to stay together for the duration, some are covering up their unhappiness by putting in the act of being happy. Even so, many have split up and it is usually a surprise to everyone if no blatant behaviors have occurred. I'll say it stronger. It's none of your business. It's unchristian to look for signs of failure. Quit it. If, on the other hand, you want to help save those marriages, then look into proven church programs that strengthen Christian marriages. Excellent programs are available through every Christian denomination and sect, Work with your pastor or priest to bring those programs to your town or to your church.
Utilitarianism is a philosophical theory of morality and "how one should act". It states that one should act so as to maximize the amount of happiness in the world (focuses on… the CONSEQUENCES of actions). That is, you should ONLY do "X" if "X" positively contributes to the happiness in the world. So you might think of it this way: Should I steal Mary's candy when she's not looking? My happiness: +200 points Mary's happiness: -300 points You must consider EVERYONE'S happiness EQUALLY, so clearly you should not steal the candy, because it decreases the happiness in the world (-100). John Stuart Mills was the first to really articulate this theory. "Greatest happiness for greatest number of people" Utilitarianism is defined as the greatest good for the greatest number with pain over pleasure, this is important because otherwise it would be okay to torture convicted criminals just to get answers about other criminals, which is bad because you intentionally causing a person pain and that is immoral which is bad. Utilitarianism is also the opposite of deontological ethics, which state that actions can only be universizable if they are done with duty or good intention essentially, man is not used as a means to an end (you can't make your employees work mandatory overtime because it will make you more money) and that the action does not violate the side-constraint (rules that control our morals). Immanuel Kant was really the first one to discuss and articulate Deontology.
I've been performing and teaching improv for 25 years. It won't necessarily increase happiness (for a few people, it just remains a stress), but it seems to be good for a lot …of people. The positive effects include teaching people to go into a high stress situation - having to perform spontaneously in front of an audience - and not worry about failing. Failure is part of the fun, and can be enjoyed rather than feared. (That's a big "life lesson"!) Improv teaches people how to be more aware on what is going on around them, which is similar to certain stress-busting "mindfulness" techniques. We're taught from an early age how to think ahead and plan, but we don't get the same practice in thinking on our feet, and when we practice it, and get good at it, it builds confidence in our ability to cope with unexpected situations. Finally, improv is mostly about comedy and laughing. It's not jokes. What makes people laugh is the immediacy and spontaneity of it all. At its minimum, improv can increase happiness by providing a fun break from the stresses of work. At its maximum, it provides a set of skills which apply to every aspect of your life.
Policies should be determined by whatever brings the greatest good to the greatest number of people.
A utilitarian is somebody with a non religious background who bases their actions on what is better for more people.
requires careful consideration of many factors and likely consequences.

Simply, it is self-confidence.

Act Utilitarianism is a theory of ethics. Basically, you need to think of it as weighing the pros and cons. The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, and sometimes …you might have to do something you don't really want to do in order to do the things you do want to do.
