Happy Marriage Equals Weight Gain
The majority of us plans on getting married and starting a family one-day. Some of us don't, and those select few may be on to something.
A new study conduced over a four year period at Southern Methodist University claimed that couples who are happily married are more likely to gain weight. The University looked at 169 newlywed couples and measured their weight and their level of satisfaction twice a year.
They found that each unit of increase in satisfaction correlated to an average of 0.12 increase in BMI every six months. In simpler terms, this is the equivalent of a 5'4” woman who weighs 119 pounds, gaining one pound a year.
Hmm, worth it? I still think so. What do you think?
