Couples who have been married for two years or longer are more likely to gain weight than their single counterparts, according to a 2012 study.
Factors that might come into play are:
– the tendency to eat out together more often
– cook bigger meals when eating at home
– increased time spent watching television together
Couples who are happy, satisfied and secure in their marriage are more likely to gain weight because they no longer feel any pressure to attract a mate. Work together to create nutritious menus, shop for healthy foods together and make meal preparation a joint effort because these can help you stay slim, as well as bond over a shared goal. To that same end, exercise as a couple, as well.
