True Love Lasts

September 15, 2010 |  by

In a 2008 article in O Magazine on neuroscience, Arthur Aron, PhD, a social psychologist at Stony Brook University, was “intrigued by a tiny percentage of couples who say they’re passionately in love after ten or 20 years.”

“We just assumed they had checked the wrong box,” he admits. “But we’ve been scanning them, and we’re seeing the same thing we saw in the brains of the newly in-love people. We don’t know why yet, but from our interviews these people have all sorts of positive factors going for them. They do exciting things, they have decent communication skills, they’re not anxious or depressed.”

And..they probably see something new in each other everyday. And something new in themselves. In other words, they’re growing. Evolving. Each. Independently. Together.
