Blame it on the genes

Well, this could be yet more bad news for divorce lawyers. Scientists have discovered a "divorce gene", which is linked to an increased risk of relationship breakdown. The bad news, though, is that the "discovery raises the possibility that scientists could one day develop drugs to target the gene in an attempt to prevent marriages from falling apart". Oh brilliant, just what we need.

  2. Glad it amused you. When writing posts like this, it's always a bit of a gamble whether readers will realise I'm joking!

  3. Is this an early (or late, depending on your point of view) April Fools, I wonder?!?

  4. As a divorce lawyer, I hope so. ;-)
