Y'know the kind of man that lacks a particular variant of gene that influences brain activity and makes them more likely to be devoted and loyal husbands! Seriously. A recent study conducted in Stockholm has found a link between a mans genes and his aptitude for monogamy. According to the study men with with two copies of the allele gene are more likely to divorce or never get married at all. I guess it's no surprise that women who are married to men with a surplus of these pesky little allele genes are likely to say their husbands are distant and unavailable as opposed to the lucky women who snagged an allele free man, who say their husbands are emotionally close and available. This opened a debate about whether tests should be made available to the public to determine if a potential mate is suitable marriage material. (Umm, YEAH!) One one side, scientist are saying while the discovery is remarkable, there are other factors that enter into the equation, like culture, a man's upbringing, family background etc. Others agree, but believe that knowing if a man is part of the 40% who have 2 or more allele genes will help couples overcome his biologically weak link.

So Cocoas, what do you think? Do we need to start setting up allele screening facilities across the country?
We'll talk more about this, Palin's pregnant daughter, and the RNC on Cocoa Mode in the Eagles Nest, tomorrow at 8:00am ET on XM Channel 169.
