Anti-rejection drug: will it work for a relationship?

Doctors have developed a new technique so that patients who have received organ transplants may no longer face a lifetime of taking anti-rejection drugs. The treatment involves weakening the patient's immune system, then giving the recipient bone marrow from the organ donor.

This could be a big boom not only for people who've received organ transplants, but could also prove helpful for those who are considering rejecting their mates. Perhaps accepting bone marrow from an annoying, offensive or unfaithful partner will suppress the urge to reject them.
