DNA dating website, do compatible genes make for a better relationship?
I read an article in the Independent about a DNA dating website, Genepartner.com, selling a genetic compatibility test (for $US249) based on the claims that genetic compatibility results in a successful relationship, a more satisfying sex life and higher fertility rates/healthier children. The article did exercise some scepticism about these claims, although it did not appear that any contact had been made with the company. I decided to write to the company to request evidence to back up their claims. I asked about the size of the studies and if they were peer-reviewed, and also if they were based on human studies. I am yet to receive a reply from them.
