Of course, then you'd just have lots of people throwing up on the sands of Earth, because setting everything "back to normal" involves separating them from mates with whom they have been extremely happy.

(Presumably you'd also have a lot of unhappy nonhumans on that distant world, for the same reasons. Assuming the mates really are nonhuman, which is to say the least not clear to me.)
