Wired for love or war?

“Much of what we do as partners is fundamentally about survival  … Love and war are both conditions of our human brain. Arguably, though, the brain is wired first and foremost for war, rather than for love. Its primary function is to ensure we survive… and it is very good at this… [but] the things we do to keep from getting killed often are exactly the things that keep us from getting into a relationship or staying in one.”

Stan Tatkin, in Wired for Love.
