Couples In Love


Visitors: 228

Love is a deep feeling of attraction and affection between two people. It is a bond that seems almost intangible, and couples in love share intense feelings and are obsessed with each other. Some feel that couples in love act like they are crazy. Many believe that falling in love affects the hormone levels of both men and women.

Findings show that both men and women who are in love have higher levels of stress hormones known as cortisol. This simply means that love can be somewhat stressful.

Men tended to show lower levels of testosterone and women showed higher levels of testosterone. In other words, men and women become more alike than ever when in love.

Another pretty obvious fact is that when two people are in love, they tend to ignore one another's faults. Hence the expression “love is blind. " This is explained by a researcher named of Bartel who believes that the neural circuits that are normally associated with critical social assessment of others is suppressed when in love. This feeling quickly dissolves through when the couple has been together for a while. Hormone levels drop, faults are quickly noticed, and in many cases - true love falls apart. Some interesting facts to note are the average marriage in the US lasts an average of seven years, and one in three first marriages ends in divorce. A recent study showed that out of 15,000 married couples, 50% are not happy, and only 25% had really good marriages.
