Reasons why Couples look alike facially after several years of being together

Marriage is the complete union of a man and a woman as husband and wife. A marriage union where couples are closely bond and intimate overtime, causes facial resemblance between the husband and the wife.

It is a common occurrence in our society that married couples, who had completely different facial appearance as at first, gradually appear to have similar facial look after spending some years together.

This physical appearance of similiarities have been researched by scientist to be caused by certain factors.

According to researchers, resemblance between couples after several years of marriage may be as a result of shared experience which affects their emotions and body language, engaging in similar activities, eating the same type of food, mimicking each other's emotions and physical gestures.

However, one basic cause of resemblance in facial appearance between couples is the number of valuable years, they spent with each other.

This factor has to do with the valuable number of years, they've bonded closely with each other. During such period, they share experiences, handle challenges together, smile and cry at almost same period, may eat same diet, etc. These years spent with each other seem to influence the facial resemblance of the couples.

This is because, scientifically, a person's phenotype (physical characteristics) is a composition of the person's Gene and the environment. The environment can be in form of climate, social interactions, nutrition, etc.

When married couples that have a healthy relationship live together for years, they become more intimate, knowing everything about each other, their body fluids interact biologically with each other, making their phenotypic appearance to gradually resemble that of their spouse in terms of reasoning, emotional status, facial appearance, etc.
