They say you can't change someone ...

... but it appears that you can sculpt them.
A new international review of seven papers on "the Michelangelo phenomenon" shows that when close partners affirm and support each other's ideal selves, they and the relationship benefit greatly.
So go sculpt your significant other.

The caveat?
"It's not just that you treat me positively," Finkel said. "You treat me in particular ways that dovetail with my ideal self."
