Can this Love Hormone Save Your Marriage?

That’s basically the idea behind some new research that aims to find out whether marriages could stay intact if couples had a little bit of help from their biochemical friend, oxytocin.

First of all, we’re bad at long-term romance, say researchers at the University of Oxford in a paper preview called “Could intranasal oxytocin be used to enhance relationships?” About half of marriages end in divorce with 20% to 72% of husbands straying alongside 10% to 54% of wives. People mean well, they want to stay together, but shit is hard, people change, life happens and there’s always biology there to fuck your shit up. (source)

Researchers explain how “well-functioning romantic relationships are important for long-term health and well-being, but they are often difficult to sustain.”

Citing “an underlying tension between our psychobiological natures, culture/environment,and modern love and relationship goals,” they suggest that one “possible solution to this predicament is to intervene at the level of psychobiology, enhancing partners’ interpersonal connection through neurochemical modulation.”

Here is a quick video on a study that shows how men change when they take the love hormone oxytocin:
