Love is a drug. The infatuation and euphoria of attraction are caused by naturally occurring amphetamines and dopamine. 

The second stage of love, attachment, is mediated by endorphins, which are natural morphine-like substances. Kissing produces endorphins that are 200 times more powerful than morphine! 

Oxytoxin, known as the bonding or love hormone, is released during nursing and orgasm in both sexes. Oxytoxin is also released when you kiss and massage your partner. 

Is it any surprise that when we “fall out of love,” we become restless and seek new attractions? But we don’t need to be ruled by our hormones. Couples can make a conscious effort to nurture their relationship and be encouraged to know that a loving touch and intimacy will strengthen their bond.
