"Can the ‘cuddle hormone’ also make men better fathers?"

Article here. Excerpt:

'The wonder hormone that a recent study said might stop men from cheating could also make them more engaged fathers, according to new research.

Oxytocin has been variously labelled as the “cuddle hormone,” the “love hormone” and the “trust hormone” in recent years.

Last month, it once again made headlines because of a study published in the Journal of Neuroscience that suggested getting men to stop cheating on their significant others might be as simple as getting them to take a whiff of the hormone. In that study, men exposed to oxytocin stayed farther away from an attractive woman than men who were not exposed to the hormone.'

What's the equivalent drug to stop women from cheating?

They don't mention that.

I wonder, if women started sniffing testosterone, would it make them better mothers?

Heaven forbid that anyone

Heaven forbid that anyone might consider the behavior of their wives as being an important reason why men might find extra-marital affairs a possibility. Men tend to have affairs when their relationships have soured, the wife is bitterly complaining, bitchy etc and there is no love left. Men who have wives that admire them and love them are much less likely to stray. Maybe we need mandatory workshops for women on how to please their husbands. NOW could do that don't you think? ;>)
