Love Lasts — It's Scientifically Proven!

Love Lasts — It's Scientifically Proven!

I don't think there's any better feeling than what you experience in the beginning of a relationship; the passion and excitement you feel is just unbeatable! As you get to know each other though, and become more comfortable, the newness can wear off and it doesn't take long before that passion and love fades away. It may seem like most relationships are doomed for boredom or divorce, but new research has proven that true love can actually last a lifetime.

At Stony Brook University in New York, researchers scanned the brains of couples who have been together for 20 years, and those who have been dating less than a year. When shown photographs of their loved ones, the scientists discovered that 10 percent of the older couples' brains had the same chemical reactions as the newer couples. This goes against previous studies, which showed that love withered after only 15 months, and was completely vanished after a decade.

I think this optimistic news about love and romance is a breath of fresh air, but do you think it's possible to love someone for your entire life?
