Genesis 2:24Wrench

BACK NEXT
[Mens' & women's shared genetic background explains why] a man leaves his father and his mother, then sticks to his wife [so tightly that] the [husband and wife] become [a] unified organism.

Note: A lifelong monogamous couple is joined together by bonds created by internal sex-drugs.
Oxytocin and vasopresin alter the nervous system to create permanent attraction between sex partners.
These chemicals backfire to create a tangled mess in your mind if you have multiple sex partners, or you expose yourself to pornography, or you even lustfully look at or think about people (other than your spouse).
