Why Do Old Couples look Alike?

Have you noticed that couples who live together for a long time tend to look alike? My grandparents really looked alike when i grew up to know them.My parents seem to be looking more alike with time.

Is it just a coincidence?     Is this true for a majority of couples?     Or you think i need to see an optician?

it's because they've been copying each other's facial expressions for years and lines have formed as a result.

In psychology it's called 'mirroring.' They mirror each other's expressions subconsciously to create a sense of intimacy

You know thats so true. I've noticed the same thing too and I've always wondered why it is that way. Maybe years of being together has knit spirit, soul and even body together

It's natural. You know they've been married for so long, and the blood that moves in the system of the man is the same blood that moves in the woman due to constant sexual intercourse. So with time, you would begin to notice that they look alike.

I agree with everyone's opinion.

I also think that the children also bring out the resemblance in the parents, cos you can see the parents through the children.
