WASHINGTON - It has plagued relationships for ages. Roommates have split because of it. Marriages have been compromised. But now - finally - there may be an answer to the toilet seat.

A small device called Tip Alert provides hope for a truce.

The product clings to the downward-facing side of the toilet seat. If it detects a guy is about to run off without putting it down once again, it speaks a reminder.

For about $10, decades of finger pointing could be resolved. The question remains: how many relationships could have been saved?
