Oxford, UK — Can you get a prescription for love?
It looks that way according to a group of scientists from Oxford University.
Researchers say that a real-life love potion is possible.
Finding your soul mate could now be as easy as popping pill.
The research out of Oxford University says it's as simple as identifying those chemicals, finding the right balance, and you've got your very own love potion.
Researchers say a pill that contains certain drugs would chemically modify a person's thinking of attraction and attachment, in other words make them love you.
But clinical physiologist Dr. Donna Rockwood says not so fast.
"Do you want your love to be biologically manipulated? I think that's a question you need to ask yourself before you take a regiment of drugs like this. Just so you can stay married to someone that maybe you shouldn't be married to," said Rockwood.
Erica and Leslie are perfect example they've been married for 2 decades.
"Pills have shelf life and they wear off. There's only a prescribed amount of time the pill will work. So what happens when the pill runs out?"
