Romantic Love Just Temporary?
Romantic love 'lasts just a year'
"Some couples may disagree, but romantic love lasts little more than a year, Italian scientists believe... But it seems from this study biochemical mechanisms could be involved in the mood changes that occur from the early stage of love to when the relationship becomes more established."
Let me take a guess on this one here. Are most of those biochemical mechanisms that change the relationship occuring, say... every 28 days?
Just a testosterone-induced educated guess on my part.

The whole "honeymoon" period of any relationship is lucky if it lasts a year...I'm all for getting past that to a real, live relationship full of life--not just the rose-colored, fairytale expectations many people wander around with...I don't want to be held to that ideal & I don't expect my husband to reach it either. Less disappointment all around that way!
As far as the 28 day crack, I'm sure there is some truth to that, but I am waiting on the study to show that men have "cycles" of their own that have nothing to do with US! :)
LOL! Well, as I always say, at least we have 3 good weeks ;)12:08 PM
Yes the romance ends quickly, but its what you are stuck with after the "glow" fades that makes your life a bitter hell.......
If it F**k's, floats , or flies, you are always better off renting!
