In love, losers are 'winners', finders are 'weepers

Washington D. C, Apr 27 : Turns out, a woman, who loses her unfaithful mate to another woman, is real winner in the long run.

Lead author Craig Morris from the Binghamton University said that their thesis is that the woman who 'loses' her mate to another woman will go through a period of post-relationship grief and betrayal, but come out of the experience with higher mating intelligence that allows her to better detect cues in future mates that may indicate low mate value.

Morris added, "Hence, in the long-term, she 'wins.' The 'other woman,' conversely, is now in a relationship with a partner who has a demonstrated history of deception and, likely, infidelity. Thus, in the long-term, she 'loses.'"
