Evolutionary biologists at MSU have determined that a spouse in the hand is better than one that might be more suitable down the road.

The findings indicate that “Mr. Right Now” could be more advantageous than “Mr. Right” later on when it comes to passing along our genetic legacy. Heavy stuff for the upcoming Valentine’s Day.

Current State’s Melissa Benmark talks with Chris Adami, a Professor of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics, and Physics, at MSU. He's co-author of this study with colleague Randal Olsen.
