Black Out Together: Couples Who Drink The Same Amount Are Best For Each Other

Good news for couples who were drunk the first time they met! A new study from the University of Buffalo’s Research Institute on Addictions found that getting wasted all the time will only harm your marriage if it’s just one person doing the drinking.

Researchers followed 634 couples for nine years after their weddings, and found that couples where only one spouse was a heavy drinker had a much higher divorce rate than other couples.

Nearly half of couples with one heavy drinker got divorced, compared to 30 percent of couples who get drunk together.

You know that saying that drinking brings people together? It might just be true!

What’s even more intriguing is that the divorce rate in drinking couples was comparable to the rate in sober couples, where neither person drank. This suggests that it’s not the alcohol itself that is causing marital dissatisfaction, but the lack of mutual interest in drinking.

So, make sure that your future hubby is also a great drinking buddy!
