Is Love Blind?

Not exactly, but once you are hooked in love, your vision gets cloudy and your ability to view a person as a whole gets questionable. When you are in a relationship you are aware of your partner's flaw, but your brain is telling you it's OK to ignore them. I for one, can see a lot of my partner's flaw but I just let it slip through the air and stay in love with him.

Past studies at the Wellcome Department of Neuro-imaging at University College in London found that when romantic partners look at each other, the part of the brain associated with social assessment and negative emotion is relatively dormant and critical judgement is dulled. According to Fisher, this mechanism may have evolved to help people stick together through thick and thin no matter how your wife or husband becomes heavier and heavier each year. =)
