According to new research from the University of Colorado – Researchers understand that people are more similar genetically to their partners than people randomly selected from the same population.
The researchers found that there were fewer differences in DNA between married people. Overall, the researchers assessed the genetic similarity between individuals , through an examination of 1.7 million single nucleotide polymorphisms in the genome of every individual.
Scientists already know that people tend to marry those with similar characteristics , including religion, age, race , income, education, etc. and in the new study, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences , the scientists show that people are also more likely to choose partners who have similar DNA.
This study shows how intuitively more people fall in love with people like them, indeed this make much sense, because the more similarities couple are less likely they’ll have fights and separations. This has implications on the future and success of their offspring…
According to new research from Michigan State University.
Another study support the same conclusions, married couples do not become more similar over time.
Instead, people tend to pick their spouse based on shared personality traits, the researchers report in the latest issue of the journal Personality and Individual Differences. “Existing research shows that spouses are more similar than random people,” said Mikhila Humbad, lead investigator. “This could reflect spouses’ influence on each other over time, or this could be what attracted them to each other in the first place. Our goal in conducting this study was to help resolve this debate.” The researchers analyzed the data of 1,296 married couples, one of the largest such studies to date, said Humbad, MSU doctoral candidate in clinical psychology. The data came from the Minnesota Center for Twin and Family Research.
The researchers wanted to know if husbands and wives become more similar as the marriage progressed. They examined a host of personality characteristics and found that, in most cases, the couples did not become more alike with more years of marriage.
The conclusion: Spousal similarity is better explained by selection than gradual convergence.
The one exception to this pattern was aggression. “It makes sense if you think about it,” Humbad said. “If one person is violent, the other person may respond in a similar fashion and thus become more aggressive over time.”
The research could have implications for future spouses as well as their offspring. “Marrying someone who’s similar to you may increase the likelihood that you’ll pass those traits on to your children,” Humbad said.
The findings also come amid the backdrop of a booming matchmaking industry in which companies attempt to match people based on similar characteristics, she noted. The research team also included M. Brent Donnellan and S. Alexandra Burt from the MSU Department of Psychology and William G. Iacono and Matthew McGue from the University of Minnesota.
Brigham Young University Study shows “Can’t buy me love”, materialistic couples have more money and more problems…
Research published Oct.13.2011 confirms The Beatles’ lyrical hypothesis and finds that “the kind of thing that money just can’t buy” is a happy and stable marriage. Scholars at Brigham Young University studied 1,734 married couples across the country. Each couple completed a relationship evaluation, part of which asked how much they value “having money and lots of things.”
The researchers’ statistical analysis showed that couples who say money is not important to them score about 10 to 15 percent better on marriage stability and other measures of relationship quality than couples where one or both are materialistic.
“Couples where both spouses are materialistic were worse off on nearly every measure we looked at,” said Jason Carroll, a BYU professor of family life and lead author of the study. “There is a pervasive pattern in the data of eroding communication, poor conflict resolution and low responsiveness to each other.”
For one in five couples in the study, both partners admitted a strong love of money. Though these couples were better off financially, money was often a bigger source of conflict for them. “How these couples perceive their finances seems to be more important to their marital health than their actual financial situation,” Carroll said. And despite their shared materialism, materialistic couples’ relationships were in poorer shape than couples who were mismatched and had just one materialist in the marriage.
The study’s overall findings were somewhat surprising to Carroll because materialism was only measured by self-evaluations.
“Sometimes people can deceive themselves about how important their relationships are to them,” Carroll said. “It’s helpful to step back and look at where you focus your time.”
The conclusion from this studies clearly show how pairs similarities and spiritual growth are evolution need, which explains well our quest to find a ” soul mate “, this concept when it is translated to life realities, is exactly the same as the conclusions of the above studies, as a soul-mate is a person with a soul at the same level ( life understanding level ), any person have million of soulmates, those are all the people with the same soul level, all those people who have a similar world/life views, this is how they behave in life, and this must be reflected also in the DNA, because the DNA shows not only body features but also characteristics. There for soul-mates are people with similar characteristics, this mean people with similar DNA… yet materialistic people tend less to look for soul mates and focus on outside elements as beauty, money and prestige, those choices are scientifically proven “the way to divorce”…
So how to find DNA similarities? , we don’t go with DNA testers in our pockets after all 🙂 Yet we do have a solution, keep on reading…
The DNA is formed during the merger DNA of the parents, influanced by the environment in which it was created, its known that DNA can be changed as a result of external environmental factors such as radiation and environment behavior. Which explains why people change throughout life, but it also explains why people that was born at the same time have some similar characteristics, We can quite easily understand the effect of time on creating the DNA as they got same cosmic radiation at the same creation time… as the earth and the solar system is moving and turning 24/7 we are all the time observing cosmic radiation from different angles this radiation force was named in ancient time angels…

This also explains why people with the same name has some characteristics similarities…
Studies has been shown that the sound and especially the human voice affects our behavior, we all know the negative impact of shouting and alternately positive impact of our favorite songs. Studies on the relationship between behavior and sound environment show a direct link to the individual characters over the years. People who live in pleasant relaxed sound enviroment have more gentle nature, contrary to people who lives in loud enviroment that are more edgy and loudy, which is of course reflected in the DNA of the people and transfered to the descendants … so there is a direct connection between the sound and the DNA.
