    Study Links Gene Variant in Men to Marital Discord - washingtonpost.com

    Wonder if this will become standard testing for marriage licenses! Wonder how it affects females carrying the allele. Weird!

    An aptitude for monogamy, eh?

    I so want to be part of that test study.

    If I fail, I'll just try try try again.

    Come on Professor, just give me one more chance.

    I'm sure that this time I can be monogamous.

    What were the demographics of this study?

    I found an article on PNAS which seems to oppose this.
    Mammalian monogamy is not controlled by a single gene

    1. Sabine Fink,
    2. Laurent Excoffier, and
    3. Gerald Heckel
