Here’s Why You Should Drink As Much (Or As Little) As Your Spouse

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.

Back in January, indoor-cycling devotees throughout the Philadelphia area jumped for joy (or shouted, like our buds over at Be Well Philly) when it was finally confirmed that SoulCycle would be opening an outpost in our region. And open it did, just this past Memorial Day Weekend.

Not surprisingly, there are more than a few brides-to-be who hop on SoulCycle’s lemon-hued indoor bikes in order to get in wedding shape—but we asked the fine folks at our new local location, and found out there are even more ways you can incorporate your favorite workout into your wedding prep.

It occurred to us recently, dear readers, that we have not yet taken a moment to make certain you are aware of a very handy, very awesome tool at your disposal in helping you keep on your get-fit-and-healthy-and-gown-ready goals for your wedding. We apologize, and plan to make it up to you right now: We’re going to give you the full rundown on Snap Kitchen.

When I was attempting to whip myself into shape for my wedding, I found it really difficult to take the time, what with an overwhelmingly overloaded schedule, to prepare healthy meals for myself to eat during the daytime while at work and running around. This often meant a) finding a few healthy lunches I could buy around my office and eating them over and over, or b) skipping the meal altogether and then eating anything that crossed my path for dinner.

So of course, Snap Kitchen opened on the corner by my office about a second after I returned from my honeymoon. The purveyor of healthy, pre-made snacks and meals made for grabbing on the go (or, you know, hoarding in your work fridge for you to pick at all week)—the “healthy eater’s Wawa,” as our buds over at Be Well Philly have deemed it— is your ticket to not struggling like I did before your last wedding-dress fitting. Haven’t inspected one of their now many Philly locations yet? Here’s the deal:
