"Human reproduction requires a male and a female. Nurturing of offspring is more reliable if both parents combine their resources. "Love" the bond that holds that parental relationship together and ensures the care of the offspring is no more than reciprocal altruistic behaviour. Human society reinforces this biological necessity by creating the concept of romantic love."

Interesting. But can it explain love between gays and lesbians? May be it's a misfiring?
