Researchers say there might be an easy solution on the way: nasal spray. Loaded with what scientists are calling a "love hormone," otherwise known as oxytocin, the spray can help couples keep their relationships calm and healthy, HealthDigest reports.
Researchers say that oxytocin helps people manage stress in social situations by lowering the amount of cortisol, which the body produces when stressed, thus leading to less arguing and fighting and a more peaceful domestic life.
A study of 50 fighting couples showed that those given the nasal spray with oxytocin displayed significantly lower levels of cortisol in their systems than those couples given a placebo.

'Heaven on a Bun' Costs a Pretty Penny
BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) — A hundred bucks might buy you more than six-dozen burgers from McDonald's, but the swanky Old Homestead Steakhouse will sell you one brawny beef sandwich for the same price.
Boca Raton Mayor Steven Abrams could barely speak between bites as he devoured the 20-ounce, $100 hamburger billed as the "beluga caviar of sandwiches."
"Heaven on a bun," restaurant owner Marc Sherry said.
The burger debuted Tuesday at the restaurant in the Boca Raton Resort and Club, where a membership costs $40,000 and an additional $3,600 a year.
At about 5 1/2 inches across and 2 1/2 inches thick, the mound of meat is comprised of beef from three continents — American prime beef, Japanese Kobe and Argentine cattle. The restaurant will donate $10 from each sale to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Someone Didn't Do So Hot in Burglary 101
BANGKOK, Thailand (AP) — A burglar who broke into a small grocery shop in northern Thailand was caught after he hid under the store owner's bed, drank a few beers and started snoring, police said.
The robber broke into the grocery in Uthai Thani province, 125 miles north of Bangkok, in the middle of the night, stole a few beers and quickly sought cover when he heard the owner of the shop stirring, police Capt. Prasert Hiewchawna said Wednesday.
The robber made a bad situation a bit worse by choosing to hide under a bed in the shop — the same bed that the owner was sleeping on at the time, he said.
While waiting to flee, the robber drank a few of the stolen beers, passed out and started snoring so loudly that he woke up the shop's owner, who quietly called police.
Reason No. 87 Why It's Good to Know the Bartender
STATESBORO, Ga., (AP) — A 21-year-old man was arrested after trying to buy drinks with a checkbook he found at a bar. Unfortunately, the checkbook's owner was one of the bartenders serving him.
Jody Brian Minor was arrested on theft and forgery charges early Saturday morning, Statesboro Police Detective Terry Briley said.
"[He was] extraordinarily intoxicated," Briley said.
Minor was at Dingus Magee's bar when he found a checkbook and began paying his tab with it, Briley said. One of the bar's employees realized the checks belonged to fellow bartender Hubble Beasley, who called police.
Briley said Minor's father has paid the delinquent $129 bar tab.
