A new study shows that once women get married, the drink pouring picks up! On the flip side though, fellas tend to drink less after getting hitched. The survey into marriage and alcohol was conducted by sociologists at four universities in the US. Lead researcher Corinne Reczek, professor of sociology at the University of Cincinnati, said: ‘
Stable marriage curbs men’s drinking yet is associated with a slightly higher level of alcohol use among women.
The professor also went on to say:
‘Men who fail to converge with their wives’ drinking habits in marriage may set a trajectory towards divorce and continued heavy drinking.’
Fellas tell your ladies to put down that wine bottle if you want to increase your chance of staying together!
