There is a Scientific reason behind broken relationships between Men and Women according to a new research done by a team of researchers from Sweden and United States. According to the research some men tend to carry a specific genetic variation that makes it harder for them from lasting bonds with women according to the news report published in the Sweden's English Language Website TheLocal.
A lead researcher Hasse Wallum at the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden made this Observation " It's not necessarily that they are less capable of love, rather it's probably about a reduction of their social competence". The study involved several institutions from Sweden and United States and published in the proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
The findings are based in a large part of genetic information gathered from about 550 pairs of Swedish twins and their partners involving a total of about 1000 men and women each.
A specific gene called AVPR1A, as well as codes for receptors of vasopressin, a hormone found in the brain which affects behaviour related to forming bonds and building relationships.
The research conducted by Wallum and his colleagues discovered that men and not women, which have one or two copies of a specific variation of the gene, have twice as high a risk for encountering problems in their relationships or marriages.
"I want to emphasize that men who carry this allele are not doomed to failure in their relationships. The effect is relatively modest. But the risks are greater than for other men. It is possible that they are also more prone to infidelity," said Wallum.
This research developments are bound to affect the way partners now perceive each other, one man might even say to his partner, hey I have this allele 334 to blame for my behaviour in relationships, but it is not that simple in real life, the researcher concludes. Isn't it ?
