First comes love. Then comes marriage. Then comes the martinis!!!! That’s why women get married, right?
Well, it may not be the reason we marry but it certainly is what us ladies do after getting married.
The study showed that men drink less with their drinking buddies after getting married. Reason being that they are spending more time with their wives. When they spend time with their wives, they drink. And when the husbands drink, their wives tend to drink with them. Therefore, wives drink more because they are drinking with their husbands. Um, yeah.
In a nutshell, wives are drinking more based on the amount of alcohol their spouse is drinking. So, are they drinking more? Maybe on average based on past studies because those findings have concluded that single folks are downing the juice. So before when you were single, you were crazy on the rye. Now that you are married you are…well, still hitting the bottle. Results may vary.
Obviously, this study dove deep into single, married and divorced men and women and asked about their alcohol consuming habits. I found it funny that no one asked about men and women who have children. Frankly, that’s the study I’m really interested in.
