Marriage of convenience or love?

Recently, more and more often you can hear that a marriage of convenience is even preferable to a marriage of love. One explanation for this is that love can pass quickly, while people who marry for convenience are set up for a long life together and do not depend on such an unpredictable feeling as love. Those who advocate love marriages are often called retrogrades and moralists.

However, it's not just about morality. Marriage for love is more natural and natural for a person than a marriage of convenience. That's what biologists say. Their conclusion: the main thing to listen to in order not to make a mistake in choosing a life partner is your own heart.

According to scientists, attraction is genetic in nature. In the course of scientific experiments, it was possible to establish that many animals are able to determine the properties of the genotype of another individual by their appearance with an accuracy of one gene! There is no doubt about the deep meaning of such a mechanism: the correct (from the point of view of genetics and from the point of view of love attraction) selection of spouses contributes to the birth of more adapted offspring and enrichment of the gene pool.
