Did the positive stimuli actually make them perceive their partner in a more positive light?

To test the effect that the montage was having on the couple, every 2 weeks for 8 weeks each spouse was shown a series of faces, including their partners and were asked to indicate the emotional tone of the image as quickly as possible.

Something amazing happened to the participants.
