The research we've all been waiting for...
A new study released in The Journals of Gerontology has discovered that couples who regularly consume alcoholic beverages together have happier, longer marriages.
Examining the drinking patterns of older married couples, they found "concordant drinking couples reported decreased negative marital quality over time".
"We’re not suggesting that people should drink more or change the way they drink.
We’re not sure why this is happening, but it could be that couples that do more leisure time activities together have better marital quality.”
