Men become tame after marriage
On the bachelorette party, the sow is really let loose again, then the bachelor period is over. But when men walk in front of the altar, it's not just their marital status that changes, there's also a lot going on in the hormonal balance, and the sex that is usually so "strong" suddenly becomes quite tame. This was reported by the German specialist magazine Psychology Today in its March 1998 issue. According to this, the US researcher Allan Mazur from Syracuse University found that men's testosterone levels drop as soon as they are married. As a result, they exhibit less aggressive and dominant behavior after marriage. If there is a divorce, testosterone concentration increases again.
Single men are so high in testosterone because they are in competition with other males and have yet to conquer a woman, the scientists believe. Married people, on the other hand, have already achieved their goal. They no longer need to offer their skin on the partner selection market and would also receive social support from their wives. These influences made high levels of the male hormone obsolete.
After a divorce, however, these relaxing effects would disappear. The man has to fight for the female sex again and the testosterone level is rising.
