A few years ago, we told you about a study that had looked into the drinking habits of married couples, and declared that whether it was a lot or a little, when couples’ drinking habits were relatively similar, their marriages were usually in a much better place than unions where one was a frequent boozer and the other hardly ever opened a bottle. (“Duh,” said couples everywhere who fight when one is a good deal drunker than the other on any given night out.)
Well, that study had looked at 634 married couples into as many as nine years of marriage—and interestingly enough, we now have an updated study that’s revealed similar results—with even more evidence to back this all up.
