Hypothetically if a couple living in the same city over the course of (two years) took turns spending the weekend (Friday night through Monday morning) at each other's place as well as one night during the week....Do you think they'd have more sex and romance than a couple who lives together or has been married for two years? When one person is a "host" and the other is a "guest" are they likely to want to make the most of their time whenever they're together?

"the second stage of being in love" - That's a nice way of putting it! Essentially the fire is a slow burning ember. I think some second marriages also breakup faster because people see signs earlier it's not going work out than the first time.
dashingscorpio, there is scientific evidence for the two stages of being in love. The first raises your serotonin A2 levels and makes you constantly think about your partner. The second stage ups dopamine (rewards) when you're around them.
Agreed!! Which is why I will probably never live with another lover.
It's so easy to get sucked into (moving in together) simply because one "believes" they'll have all the passion and romance they presently have without the "inconvenience" of having to pack a bag and travel across town. Little do they know. :)
