Marriage affects how much you drink

Getting hitched will have an impact on the amount you drink - and the results are surprising!

A new study has revealed how marriage has a direct impact on how much you drink, and the results are surprising.

The study was carried out by Swedish analysts who wanted to learn whether drinking to excess was linked to getting hitched, and the results found that it could lower the risk of developing an alcoholic disorder.

Of the married females studied, 71 per cent were found to have a lower chance of boozing too much compared to single ladies.

For married men, the number was still quite high at 60 per cent.

The researchers have established that couples drink less as a result of psychological and social parts of marriage, where they pull each other up if they’ve been drinking too much or going out a lot.
