Do low levels of oxytocin cause a person to become unfaithful (have an affair)?
In hearing Paul Zak's discussion on 'Trust, morality and oxytocin', I began to wonder if a person's relationship 'morals' decline with lower levels of oxytocin...and this seems funny to write.....could it be that this may be part of the reason people engage in extramarital affairs, particularly people in long term marriages when a spouse describes: boredom, lack of sparks, etc?
