So now we have it – the reason divorce rates have soared since the 1960’s: it’s the good old contraceptive pill. Well it’s been blamed for the breakdown of moral values before but now it seems that it actually causes women to pick the wrong partner!

A team at the University of Newcastle has discovered that the odour preferences of women on the pill are affected, causing them to pick Mr Wrong instead of Mr Right. Later in their marriage when they come off the pill, it’s only to discover that he doesn’t smell right after all and then the bickering really sets in. Imagine waking up one day and finding a skunk in your bed!
