Adverse sentimental relationships that cause marital dissolution may involve a genetic component composed of genes from a couple, which interact with cultural, sociological, psychological and economic factors. However, the identification of these genes is very challenging. Here, we address this challenge by developing a computational model that can identify specific genes that impact on sentimental relationships of couples. The model was derived by implementing the second law of thermodynamics that quantifies sentimental relationships within a dynamic gene identification framework, called systems mapping. The model is equipped with a capacity to characterize and test the pattern of how genes from a couple interact with each other to determine the dynamic behavior of their marital relationships. The testing procedure is based on comparing genotypic differences in mathematical parameters of sentimental dynamics described by a group of ordinary differential equations (ODE). The model allows the test of individual parameters or a combination of parameters, addressing specific details related to martial relationships. The model may find its implications for designing an optimal effort policy and therapy to maintain a harmonic family in light of genetic blueprints of individual couples.
