"Fidelity Gene" Determines Marital Stability Protection from Divorce


Marriages spanning Stuart, Jupiter, and Wellington, are breaking down and ending in divorce for a multitude of reasons. One of the most cited reasons for separating is adulterous behavior. As high as 50% of marriages end with the couple divorcing; many end as the result of infidelity

Consequently, people are beginning to investigate what determines whether one will give in to temptations. Experienced family law and divorce attorneys in West Palm Beach and across Palm Beach County have recognized that while some clients appear to be more resistant to extramarital affairs and committed to their spouse, others have a difficult time staying faithful.

A recent study examined whether commitment is a genetic factor or one that stems from a person’s psychological make up and responses. The results have suggested that while genetic differences may influence commitment, the brain can easily be trained to resist temptation. By studying the body’s regulation of vasopressin, a bonding hormone, it appears that the more committed you are, the less likely you are to find someone of the opposite sex attractive.

Variations between men and women also showed that females have developed stronger instincts to avoid people that threaten their relationships. Although the evidence cannot be used to predict future behavior in spouses, it may provide some answers for concerned couples.
