Why Ayn Rand had a messed up love life?

Apparently altruists have better marriages. I don't think of altruism in love as altruism per se, but more as selfishness + a utility function that values future returns. Many things that seem like "sacrifices" in the short run are necessary to obtain happiness in the long run. Your mileage may vary.
