There’s a saying that happy couples gain weight when they love each other and there’s also evidence to support this claim. According to many studies the couples who are happy and satisfied with their relationships tend to gain weight.
Here are some researches we did and what was the result of the researches.
Married couples gain weight
According to research at the University of North Carolina done by following weight measurements of more than 8,000 people and concluded that a married woman could earn an average of 24 pounds in the first five to six years of her marriage. They also concluded women who lived with their partner but were not married earned £ 22, and the women who left their partner earned only £ 13.
The study also showed that men gained weight during the transition from a single to a relationship, and it was fo2und that men who lived with their other half for more than two years did not take more than 25 books twice as often as men live his partner.
It was said that there is a strong correlation between dating relationships and the number of outcomes related to obesity in the study. In long-term dating relationships, weight gain is an evident. But, smoking and alcohol abuse have significantly decreased, indicating that couples are willing to adopt a healthier lifestyle.
Newly Married Couples
According to the research conducted by the National Institute of Health in order to determine whether weight gain in newly married couples is a positive or negative reflection of their happiness, followed married couples for over 4 years, examining their emotional health and stress. Then they revealed that recently married couples happily increased twice as often, and also the couples who said they were less happy with their spouse were less likely to grow up.
As they do not have to earn another partner and feel happier than they are the happy couples gain more weight. The couples who are not happy don’t gain weight due to stress. The married couples who have gained weight should concern about their BMI for health reasons than for their outlook.
Weight gain is contagious
According to a study from the New England Journal of Medicine, weight gain is contagious, even among married couples. It’s like this, when one partner gains weight, the other partner has a 37% chance of gaining more as they adapt to each other’s habits when they spend a lot of time together. Unhappy couples easily cannot adapt to the eating habits of others as they do not spend time together.
They have analyzed the social environment, the reciprocal habits and activities of couples, and came to a conclusion that mutual weight gain was due to the psychological impact of both individuals on their eating habits.
These studies are conducted by health professionals and they only show a number of examples in the world. So this does not apply for everyone. Don’t think that you are not satisfied with your partner if you do not gain weight in the marriage. These studies were done to understand the life situation of couples and combating obesity.
You should have a positive influence on healthy eating habits and lifestyles to enjoy a happy life with your partner for the rest of your life.
