People's ability to love, trust and resolve conflict is developed during infancy. It depends on your interpersonal experiences with your mother during the first 12-18 months of life; and can affect one's romantic relationships later in life, according to researchers from the University of Minnesota, US.

Following the study of 75 children of low-income mothers, starting from birth into their 30s, researchers concluded that infants who were mistreated apparently become defensive arguers, while those whose mothers were attentive and supportive work through their problems later on, secure in the goodwill of the other person.

Lead author of the study, psychologist Jeffry A. Simpson said, "Before you can remember, before you have language to describe it, and in ways you aren't aware of, implicit attitudes get encoded into the mind, about how you'll be treated or how worthy you are of love and affection."

The research has been published in the online edition of 'Science Daily'.
