They have also been happily married for nearly four decades. Love may well be one of the most studied, but least understood, behaviors. More than 20 years ago, the biological anthropologist Helen Fisher studied societies and found evidence of romantic love—the kind that leaves one breathless and euphoric—in of them. In , Fisher led a research team that published a groundbreaking study that included the first functional MRI fMRI images of the brains of individuals in the throes of romantic love. Her team analyzed 2, brain scans of college students who viewed pictures of someone special to them and compared the scans to ones taken when the students looked at pictures of acquaintances. Two of the brain regions that showed activity in the fMRI scans were the caudate nucleus, a region associated with reward detection and expectation and the integration of sensory experiences into social behavior, and the ventral tegmental area, which is associated with pleasure, focused attention, and the motivation to pursue and acquire rewards. This circuit is considered to be a primitive neural network, meaning it is evolutionarily old; it links with the nucleus accumbens. Some of the other structures that contribute to the reward circuit—the amygdala, the hippocampus, and the prefrontal cortex—are exceptionally sensitive to and reinforcing of behavior that induces pleasure, such as sex, food consumption, and drug use. These areas can stay lit up for a long time for some couples.
The song was sent to the US rhythmic contemporary and urban contemporary radio stations on September 27, , as the album's fourth and final single. Its instrumentation consists of a guitar arpeggio , swirling organ, a simple chord progression, syncopated strings, and orchestra. Lyrically, the song has themes of swinging back and forth between the highs and lows of toxic love. The song reached number five on the US Billboard Hot chart; it became Rihanna's 22nd top-five single breaking her tie with Elvis Presley as the artist with the 5th most top-five singles, and it was also her 30th top-ten single tying her with Madonna and The Beatles. Ball recalled, "We wanted it to have that juxtaposition of an old school soul feel with modern lyrics. That's why Amy Winehouse was never pastiche or retro even though her music has an old soul sound. Brown sent it to Rihanna and she also reacted similarly, writing additional lyrics. American producer Kuk Harrell handled the song's vocal production. Ball and Angel also supplied the song's keyboards and drums. The vocal recording was carried out by Marcos Tovar for Allfadersup and Harrell.
I have finally realized that the church is fake and I'm so grateful that I got a second chance with this guy. Fall in love, learn, make some mistakes, laugh, serve other people, reproduce, and let the whole story start again. Do you want to be married in the temple. You all are strong for staying but I just don't see how it is possible long term to live like this. Props to people who do. There is NO guarantee that marrying a returned missionary RM in the temple equates with love and happiness. Some say, they love wearing it, it gives them "protection from evil". You are not a worthy RM priesthood holder. That's another 15 for me.
I too suffer the same problem. LDS theology heavily promotes the idea that marriage and family are an important source of happiness in this life, not just the next. These are things your wife may consider matter-of-fact and you may be surprised by if you don't discuss them now. She never mentioned TSCC. It is an act of faith. Each time, I start to make friends and have to leave them and move.
