Moving in together is a big step. Does it make things better or worse? How soon is too soon? Does it lead to breakups — or worse, the D word? Well, a recent study shows that premarital cohabitation isn’t linked with divorce — at all. In fact, the research out of University of North Carolina, Greensboro shows that two-thirds of new marriages in the United States start with cohabitation. Phew.

Our open mindedness to friends-with-benefits lifestyles is coming around, once again, to bite us in the bum. A new study reveals that 60 percent of newlyweds have slept with at least two guests invited to their wedding.

A study done at Case Western Reserve University in Ohio found that the parts of our brains that empathize and the parts that analyze are essentially unable to function at the same time.  Instead, our brains move back and forth between the two functions. “This is a cognitive function we’ve evolved.Empathetic and analytic thinking are, at least to some extent, mutually exclusive in the brain,” explained Anthony Jack, one of the researchers.

This explains why even the most intelligent people can get taken in by a sob story, or why the overly analytical person can come off as cold-hearted, because only one function or the other is at work. Researchers also found that some people tend to rely on one function or the other. Keep reading »
