Swedish scientists have isolated what has been dubbed The Divorce Gene.
Of course, the presence of the so-called Divorce Gene doesn’t guarantee that the person with the gene will get a divorce.
But there is a statistical correlation between the presence of the gene and the brain chemistry’s influence in weakening or countering bonding.
This discovery could potentially lead to a treatment that “cures” predisposition for divorce.
Failing that, it may lead to development of a test that could measure the extent of the gene-bearer’s predisposition for divorce.
So it may be possible to determine by genetic testing prior to marriage who may be at greater risk for marital difficulties and divorce.
