As you get older you may notice that your husband has started to lose interest in your or has acted like he is no longer attracted to you. According to men this is because as women age and as they tend to put on weight, they become less attractive due to the fact that men are programmed to look for young females that still have a good opportunity for fertility. While many women would take offense to this, there is validity to this theory.
Men are biologically programmed to reproduce, which means that they are programmed to go after a female who looks as though she will be able to reproduce with him. It is the same way for many other animals as well, so why couldn’t it be true for humans?
A man called into a talk show in response to the question of why men stop being attracted to their wives as time goes on and answered with the programming theory. A woman called in and angrily yelled at him telling him to grow up and get over himself. Honestly though, if she were a man, do you think the response would have been the same? Of course not. She accused him of using this as an excuse for men who cheat on their wives or leave them for younger women.
The host of the talk show thought that the man had a valid point. He pointed out that men do not want to think or act this way, but it is how nature programmed them. There is no switch in their brain that they can flip to the “off” position once they get married, he explained.
What do you think-is this a valid reason?
