It might not sound romantic, but Helen Fisher has love down to a science.
Fisher is a biological anthropologist and a scientific advisor to Match.com. She and her fellow researchers have spent a lot of time using MRI scanners to look at the brains of people in love.

In the event that a pregnancy is unplanned, the parents experience even greater negative impacts on their relationship.read more
