Familiar laws of physics are applied to study human relations, modelled by their world lines (worldlines) combined with social networks. We focus upon the simplest, basic element of any society: a married couple, stable due to the dynamic balance between attraction and repulsion. By building worldlines (worldsheets), we arrive at a two-level coordinate systems: one describing the behaviour of a string-like binary system (here, a married couple), the other one, external, corresponding to the

The approach is illustrated by simple examples (semi-quantitative toy models) of worldlines (sheets), open to further extension, perfections and generalisation. Worldlines are combined with social networks. Simple illustrative examples with empirical inputs taken from intuition and (or) observation are appended.
