Putting the Love Puzzle Together Maybe it was around the time my mother’s third marriage ended that I became interested in the nature of love relationships, what made them prosper and what made them sink like the Titanic, taking down all but a very few survivors. At the time, in an immigrant section of Brooklyn, no one got divorced; the word had barely made it into the everyday lexicon. Years later, with relationship issues practically making the headlines daily, figuring out what makes them work and what contributes to their demise is still a big assignment. It is no surprise that a few decades later, as a psychologist specializing in relationship compatibility, I still have questions and I continue to be intrigued by the intricacies and complexities of this thing called love.

I knew though, I would get a serious scolding if my mom caught me. It’s bad manners to spit. But now I have a good excuse to do just that and it’s in the name of DNA. A home DNA test can sound intimidating but it’s as easy as fulfilling that childhood dream of spitting like you belong in the major leagues. Let me explain how it works.
