About 10 percent of the mature couples had the same chemical reactions when shown photographs of their loved ones as those just starting out.
Using brain scans, researchers at Stony Brook University in New York have discovered a small number of couples respond with as much passion after 20 years together as most people only do during the early throes of romance, Britain's Sunday Times newspaper reported.
"The findings go against the traditional view of romance -- that it drops off sharply in the first decade -- but we are sure it's real," said Arthur Aron, a psychologist at Stony Brook, told the Sunday Times.
You mean the MODERNIST view of romance, don't you?
This isn't incompatible with the view that 90% of humanity are opportunistic, parasitic monkeys, while 10% make the world continue to function.
Why not lose the 90% dead DNA load? They're clearly people without souls.
