Science Provides the 'Why' of Love, Balinese Retreat Provides the 'How'

Balinese Retreat, boutique Melbourne couples accommodation, is helping couples put into practice
the theories of love that science has uncovered over the past years.

Melbourne, Australia, October 06, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Science has made some stunning leaps forward
throughout most of our lifetimes, and in past months has been turning its considerable array of tools to
discovering why we fall in love, what happens to our brains when we experience long lasting love,
whether opposites truly attract and why we have different expectations of our partners while dating as
compared to in marriage.

However, all these new discoveries need a place for putting the theory into practice. Melbourne weekend
escape Balinese Retreat has proven exceptionally successful at keeping the romance alive for couples,
helping put the theory of science into practice on the ground.

Balinese Retreat, boutique Melbourne couples accommodation, is helping couples put into practice the
theories of love that science has uncovered over the past years.

There has been sizeable scientific interest in love over the past few years, with some of the key findings
including:

There is an evolutionary drive for monogamy, with the need for females to have a stable home in which
to successfully raise their young, and men needing to limit the size of their brood to ensure that each
offspring is more likely to survive.

Opposites don't necessarily attract: "We are twice as likely to be attracted to someone when we agree on
six out of 10 issues than we are with someone who we only agree with on three out of 10 issues," found
psychologist Donn Byrne of the University of Pennsylvania.

Brain scans done by researchers at Stony Brook University in New York have revealed that love does not
necessarily fade over time.

"It's fascinating to discover about the science of love; it gives us some real clues to happiness in our own
relationships and life in general," say Ms. Deborah Quitt, owner of Balinese Retreat. "We've specifically
designed our luxury accommodation to facilitate closeness, monogamy and agreement, and we believe
that short breaks at Balinese Retreat do have a major impact on our guests' relationship health," Ms. Quitt
continued.

These theories have been extended into practical applications through a recent survey of 3,000 married
adults on Confetti, which discovered that most successful marriages shared characteristics like:

"Removing yourself from the pressures of everyday life is a must for keeping the romance alive - that's
where Balinese Retreat can be real relationship medicine," Ms. Quitt finished.
