Wait, co-dependent couples really do read each other's minds?

We owe this blissfully co-dependent couple an apology. Their connection is very real, albeit annoying. (ThinkStock Images) We owe this blissfully co-dependent couple an apology. Their connection is very real, …You know those annoying couples who finish each other's sentences? They can't help it. New research suggests they really can read each other's minds. It's a happy day for couples who believe they're psychically connected. It's a sad day for those of us who've been writing them off as deeply needy.

New research suggests that some couples develop a "sixth sense," according to the Daily Mail, my source for all things science and weird British celebrities. In a brain scan study, several couples shared identical mental activity and "physiological alignment". "They had reached a state in which their nervous systems were ticking over in harmony, helping them to know each other's thoughts and emotions," according to the Mail.

In other words, some couples really are soul-mates. Of course, it's a result of spending way too much time together. But still, apologies are owed to those friends we've expressed concern over "turning into their boyfriends". They actually might be, and it's kind of sweet. I said, kind of.
