Couples Who Drink Together, Stay Together
Couples drinking together stay together
If you want to believe in Cialis advertising, all you need to maintain good relationships is a pier and two bathtubs. And a little Cialis. And about 30 minutes. But not more than 4 hours.
In fact, you only need two glasses and a little alcohol. Sorry, ED meds.
The good news about alcohol comes from research published in Journals of Gerontology, Series B: Psychological Series. They concluded that “drinking couples have a deteriorated marriage quality over time”, for couples over 50 years old. The study examined the responses of 2,767 married couples in 33 years on average and having discovered a specific relationship with the happiness of women who drink.
“Women who reported drinking alcohol over time reported a decline in the quality of marriage, while husbands also reported drinking,” says the summary.
As Reuters points out, the study also found that the amount of alcohol consumed by couples was not as important as whether the two partners were on one side or not in terms of alcohol consumption or abstention.
“We do not suggest people to drink more or change the way they drink,” Dr. Kira Birditt of the University of Michigan told Reuters that more and more recreational activities combine better marriage quality. ”
Of course, people with alcohol problems often have problematic relationships. Do not think that alcohol alone solves your problems.
But as most ads on alcohol say, use it responsibly. And apparently also get married responsibly.
