I have been on the pill for over 10 years now and for the most part it has been a good thing for me, but sometimes I feel like it turns me into a monster with my mood swings.
Anyway, I came across this research (which has been out for awhile, nothing new) and am now thinking that I should definitely get off the pill (at least until I find the right guy):
What do you all think? This makes me super worried that I could actually marry the wrong guy!! I feel like since I am single right now this may be a good time to stop for a bit and then in time start again.

@missjess12: I personally don’t buy into the idea that you could meet a man, fall in love, to the point where you marry him and commit to a life together….and then decide to stop taking birth control, and all of a sudden you don’t want to be with him anymore. I just don’t believe that the pill has THAT much influence over sexual attraction, ESPECIALLY when you’re also in love with the person.
I have been with DH for 3 years and in that time, have spent periods both on and off of the pill. I never noticed a difference in how much I loved or wanted him.
I wouldnt worry worry about it, OP. Really.

I learned all about that in school, but from my experience, I didn’t notice any difference being on the pill or off.

Falling in love is a hormonal, magical thing. Staying in love is largely a choice. If you’ve been together this long, and you’re happy, I seriously doubt he could be the “wrong mate.” And if your hormones start telling you otherwise, just ignore them, like you would if a new hot guy started working with you or something.
